Canon Targets New Amphibious Market

Curious Tree FrogHaving realized that the digital camera market is nearing saturation, Canon is now targeting the amphibious market. According to Chordata Anura, Vice President of Market Research at Canon, “There are many more frogs than humans. The market potential is unlimited.” When asked about payments, Canon indicated that they would accept houseflies, mosquitoes, or bitcoins.

    And then what will these frogs do with all their images? How will they record their memories for the tadpoles of the future? What an amazing new market. But we will have to keep in mind that the “time starved” tree frog need new solutions, that are not yet defined or developed. And they need them soon, before they go into winter hibernation.
