Pinhole Camera the Size Of A Thumbnail Actually Takes Photos
The creator of this tiny camera made two mistakes. One: it's styled like a Lomography Fisheye camera, but can't shoot fisheye photos. Two: they're not for sale yet. I demand ten.

By designer Ingo Maurer, the hanging lamp is an artful combination of comic book typography and illustration that captures the essence of the classic comic book aesthetic without mocking it in simple parody. The result is a truly three dimensional piece that's fascinating from any angle. More shots, including a fitting portrait of Maurer himself, at: [designBOOOOOOM]
(We're not sure that 'BANG BOOM' was intended to be typed in all caps, but if not, such initial intention were clear errors on the artist's part.)
