Barbiecam is joining me to the Transmediale Berlin next february. A big DSLR camera is nice, but really big and bulky. I thought Barbie is a better option.
The video is a pun : DSLR vs Barbiecam. Nicely produced.
My old professor William Urichhio (UU, MIT) introduced me to the Barbie video girl last november. Stunning what Toydesigners come up with! It scared the authorities a bit. In Barbiecam release year (2010) word has gone out that they are weary if Barbiecam is going to give pedofiles a free hand in abusing kids with their own toys.

Interesting detail is that there is a blond Barbie video girl, an African-American Barbie video girl, but no Video Ken. I only found a Sweet Talking Ken!!! The poor guy can only record 5 seconds of sweet talk (if you sweet talk him).
Barbie luckily has 25 glamorous minutes of videorecordingtime.
