Difficulty in gripping and navigating the digital compact cameras led designer Andrew James Warner to think about a new form of digital camera and design the 'Inclusive Digital Camera'. This camera is designed to be held at waist height, removing the difficult movement of lifting the camera up to eye level. The camera inductively charges the built in lithium ion battery, connects to the Wi-Fi network/Bluetooth and transfers photographs taken to a computer from the built in memory when situated in the accompanying docking station. 
Unlike a typical digital compact camera, the lens rotates 90 degrees from landscape to portrait, reducing wrist and finger movement compared to traditionally turning the whole camera. Around the lens there are four high-powered flashes, providing a 360 degree flash. As the user rotates the lens from landscape to portrait, the screen interface automatically flips to adhere to the orientation.
The capture and zoom buttons are located on either side of the camera, in the natural resting position of the hand, allowing the user to operate the camera with one hand, regardless of weather they are right or left handed. The screen can be lifted to a 90 degree angle, allowing more flexibility for shooting perspectives. This subsequently allows the camera to be used at the traditional eye level perspective.
The interface has been designed to be clear and intuitive. Vivid color has been used to highlight settings, with users associating co lour with a specific setting and text has been removed and replaced with recognizable symbols. A tripod attachment is included with the height specification model. When the camera is placed on the tripod attachment it auto-centres and secures the camera in place using a magnetic attraction.
