Nokia came up with a smartphone with a camera that reacts to sound

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has unveiled a Nokia patent for a smartphone with a unique camera. This is a block that can rotate 360 ​​degrees.

The patent illustrations provide insight into an unusual system. As you can see in the pictures, the pivot block is located at the top of the case. The position change is carried out using a small electric actuator in response to commands from a companion application.

As conceived by Nokia, the camera will automatically rotate towards the sound source. To obtain a spatial audio picture, it is proposed to use an array that combines at least two microphones.

The described construction can be useful for taking self-portraits and collective photographs. In this case, the smartphone can be placed in a convenient place and give a voice command to activate shooting. Having caught the voice, the camera will be able to independently aim at the object.

True, so far the unusual apparatus exists only in patent documentation. Whether Nokia is going to implement the proposed idea into reality is not clear.
