Vanity Cameras With Slimming Effect

HP has just released a new digital camera that includes a new image processing feature they dub the "Slimming Effect."

There's no miracle weight loss here, just a simple horizontal stretch transformation which compresses the center of an image and stretches the edges. (Note to the unwary: don't try this one if your wife is near the edge of the image. She won't thank you for it.)

So now we can trade off apparent poundage for reduced cranial volume and that ever-memorable cone-head sort of look.

I'm sure it will become a standard Photoshop filter within a 30 days. Who knows? This might even open up the fashion industry to the non-anorexic!
