Animal Shaped Security Cameras

Why should a security camera look like a bland industrial artifact when it can look like a piece of art? These Animals cameras by Italy-based Parson take their cues from nature. They’re not really hidden cameras but they don’t look like security cameras at first glance. They have a number of different animal shapes from the cricket (or is that a grasshopper?) above to the squirrel below:

Maybe that’s a chipmunk and not a squirrel? I think I should have paid more attention in my zoology and animal biology classes. I could see these in a school or daycare or someplace where you’d want to make the cameras look more “fun” and less like actual cameras. Cute bird design below:

Pretty cool idea. (via gessato)
