California College of the Arts ID student Ryan David Francis breaks out of the box with his radically-shaped Sony DSLR concept, above. The unusual form isn't purely aesthetic: Francis' aim was to provide a shape that allowed a variety of ways to grip the camera while shooting.
Ergonomically, the emphasis is on old-school shooters who use the viewfinder more than the LCD; Francis tilts the latter, not to make it easier to look at (which it probably doesn't) but to provide space for your nose when your eye is up to the viewfinder, which would hopefully eliminate that grease stain you get on the typical vertical LCD.
You might recognize Francis' name from last month's Home & Housewares Show in Chicago. His omnidirectional Swivel Gardening Cart concept, below, placed in the student design competition.
