The Video Gift Box is a gift box for jewelry that captures a recording of the expression and happiness shown by a person receiving a jewelry gift--there is a small digital video camera that begins recording when the box is opened.

This invention brought me to the final group of 24 for American Inventor 2006.

Make Assumptions

If you make the assumption that the person receiving the gift is going to like it, it is not necessarity to capture the person's expression as s/he opens it. On the other hand, if the person does NOT like the gift, the video will capture the negative--or not quite positive--reaction. Who would want a video of this???????

Perhaps a video of the person taking the jewelry to the pawn shop would be more interesting.
