Will.i.am is planning to launch a 14MP camera accessory for the iPhone next week, according to The Telegraph.

The first product from his new consumer electronics and app venture i.am+ is an accessory that clips onto an iPhone and transforms the eight megapixel smartphone camera into a 14 megapixel camera, which it is claimed dramatically enhances the clarity and definition of your photographs. Speaking exclusively to The Daily Telegraph, he says: ‘We have our own sensor and a better flash. You dock you phone into our device and it turns you smartphone into a genius-phone. We take over the camera.’

When asked how he came up with the idea the singer said, 'I was just hanging out afterwards, and one of the models took an iPhone picture, which circulated the planet before the shoot was even over,’ he says. ‘I took one of the photographer’s lenses and held it up on my [phone] and said “imagine this one day”. Then I said: “I’m going to do this”.'

The product is expected to launch next week in London.

Lol right... Wait who is Will.i.am? I know who iPhone is but who's that guy? The girls hot!

i do not understand all the negative comments. This guy is really an artistic, creative and social mindd genius. Do the negative posters have anything in their repertoire that would even begin to match what he has done.

Yet another useless invention from him. What happened to the car he was designing... Oh yeah it was just as useless

Yes it's useless, but that type of thing is what attracts buyers of apple products.

Interesting! I hope the camera dock will still be slim and light but durable. Love the innovation and will try the lens for sure if it is reasonably priced. Some items nowadays are terribly over priced just because it bears the name of an actor/-tress and/ or singer.
