Bizarre AI camera turns images into sonnets and haiku

It looks like a homemade Polaroid camera, perhaps made with one of the best 3D printers. But this AI-powered device doesn't take photos at all. It 'captures' poems.

The Poetry Camera turns the visual input it receives through its lens into an AI-generated poem that describes the scene. It's kind of like an AI image generator but in reverse: it takes a real image and generates what could be compared to a prompt used in a text-to-image tool, but with more poetic language.
