LEGO Binocular Camera
March 2, 2012 Leave a comment
Have you ever imagined building a real house out of LEGOs? What about a Formula 1 Ferrari Racecar that you can really drive? Lots of makers are exploring how these familiar building blocks can be reinvented into real world things!
It was designed by Norwegian photographer (and maker!) C.F. Salicath. He was inspired when he learned that classic cameras like the Kodak Brownie were very simple inside. They could take a photograph with just a few basic parts: a lens, a shutter blade, an aperture and rolls to hold the film in place. In an era of digital cameras, this maker wanted to see if he could build his own old-fashioned camera in a new-fashioned way. Can you do it, too? If you do, tell us about it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SAFETY NOTE: Have an adult help you with this one, kid makers, as the instructions are challenging and involve small parts.
