Descriptive Camera outputs a description of the photo it takes rather than the image itself. The image is uploaded to the crowd-sourcing service Mechanical Turk where a human views the image and writes a description. This description is then downloaded to the camera and printed as the developed ‘photo’.

It’s interesting that these ‘photographs’ are thus subjective interpretations of a scene unique to each anonymous author. If you ‘developed’ these multiple times the results may not even seem to describe the same scene.
Fade Away searches twitter for recent posts containing the phrase ‘fade away’ and uses an ultra violet laser diode to write the results on phosphorescent vinyl (a ‘glow-in-the-dark’ material).
