X-Cap automatically protects your lens even if you forget

Most point-and-shoots have an integrated lens cap that closes off, protecting the delicate glass underneath the moment you're done taking shots. DSLR's and other interchangable-lens cameras? Well, you've got to remember to put those covers back on yourself. The X-Cap, however, brings that automated protection to your fanciest of cams with a simple add-on that wont interfere with your picture taking (provided it's mounted right). It's pretty self explanatory really, you can see the Taiwanese designed and manufactured cap in action after the break and hit up Engadget Chinese for an interview with the designer.
