For those days when you're not feeling so great about yourself, these go right along with your skinny jeans or that little black dress. Enter the HP r927. It’s an 8.2 megapixel camera (the first of its kind) that for $399 has the amazing feature of a slimming effect, able to supposedly trim 10 lbs off the photo subject. The camera does this by slimming the center of a photo and compensating by widening the edges of the picture, so that the perspective of the image is maintained.
The r927's creators compare it to a theme park fun house mirror, but slightly less exaggerated. Of course if you’re a graphics artist or a pro with photo editing software you can already do this, but for those of us who aren't, this is the next best thing.
Boyfriends will also love this camera for trying to avoid major meltdown, answering those awkward time of the month "Do I look fat in these?" type questions. I still think loving your g/f just the way she is & showing her how much she means to you is a better way of achieving her ultimate happiness. (Also telling her the truth has its benefits. I would kill my b/f if he let me go out in public looking like a fool) But don’t listen to me …what do I know ?? I just happen to have been a girl for the past ummmm 25 years. You can read about the camera on gizmodo or from the original article in the New York Post
