The hilarious Descriptive Camera taps into the crowdpower of Amazon’s Mechanical Turk to churn out descriptions of photos, rather than the photos themselves. It’s rendered gems such as:

  • “Looks like a cupboard that is ugly and old. having some plates on it with a lamp attached to it.”
  • “It’s a dark room with a window. The image is quite pixelated.”
  • “This is a faded picture of a dilapidated building. It seems to be run down and in need of repirs[sic].”
  • “Corner of a wood floored room with a tool chest, bike, stack of books, box leaning against the wall, an open door with a bag hanging off the doorknob, and a pair of closed double doors with cables hanging on the handles.”
