Each of these portraits by photographer Carlo Van de Roer uses an AuraCam 6000 to capture not only the subject but the color of their aura. According to the Auracam 6000 website (possibly circa 1995), the Auracam uses hand sensors connected via cables to the camera. Polaroid instant film is put into the camera and when the 'customer' puts their hands onto the sensor, the camera gathers 'biofeedback parameter data.' Basically, the thing translates the electromagnetic field of a person and projects it as a colorful field around the film.
