For the Smilebooth product line, Metalab completely rethought the photobooth genre. We literally took the booth out of the photobooth, so there is no seat, no curtain, no privacy. We felt that the photobooth was predicated on the notions of modesty and privacy, which no longer exist in our digital culture. We stripped away the curtain and created digitally-fabricated, tall objects. Linus is a beautiful, stand-alone unit that’s technologically integrated with a touch screen interface, high quality digital SLR camera, and an LED flash box. And it all packs into two carry-on containers for traveling to far-flung events.
