A Work in Progress. 
I have an idea for a small camera that can be easily pocketed and always at the ready.  With a simple "snapping" motion, the slim cover reveals the lens/flash and you take your photos. Touch-screen on the back allows for quick viewing and sharing to your favorite social network. 
You can twist the camera around a finger (like a party noisemaker) to charge the internal battery. 
First sketch ideas showing a simple form and the funciton of a swiveling lens cover. 
Quick sketch explorations for the form of the front cover of the Swivl.  I'm thinking of shapes that work well with the fingers and action of smoothly opening the swiveling door.  I chose a simple gradating triangle to provide the function while creating an iconic memorable shape.
