Today’s invention was inspired by the amazing family Williamson.

Now that smartphones are getting voice interpretation abilities, wouldn’t it be great if you could set your cameraphone down and have it take pictures of you say 0.5 sec after yelling your codeword at it?

(Obviously, your word would need to be easily user-modifiable to stop pranksters photographing you at inopportune moments.)

How about having the system interpret wider instructions like: “shutter? fastshot, instagram sepia, delay one second, send to Patrick” ?

It might be fun to have your smartphone take a shot every time it heard some keyword in conversation (a modern-era swearbox perhaps?)
