Yes, this interactive photobooth takes your picture whenever you touch each other! Designed by vienna based designer Talia Radford of taliaYstudio and media designer Jonas Bohatsch, this photo studio setting puts a new spin in interactive photography, combining human based interaction with high tech electronics. Continue after the the break to find out how!

The Thermobooth features a new shutter release system from specially developed high-tech OLED mirrors by osram in which skin contact between two people triggers a set of processes that result in a glorious lo-fi instant thermal-printed picture. Presented during Vienna Design Week, Thermobooth, the first of a group of collaborative projects between taliaYstudio and Osram´s OLED technology, introduces human-based gestures and three dimensional qualities and opens up a stage of playfulnes and the unexpected, as part of an ongoing exploration with emotional interactions in electronics.
