A DIY Digital Camera Made With Cardboard And An Arduino

A Simple, Open Source Camera You Can Make At Home

Photographer Product Designer Coralie Gourguechon made the Craft Camera–a DIY digital, Arduino camera–as a way of countering the “planned obsolescence and complexity of electronic products.” All of the components are open source, and the design has a Creative Commons license.

The major components, in addition to an Arduino UNO, are a lithium battery pack, a Snootlab SD card Arduino shield, and a JPEG color camera TTL interface. The design for the case can be printed onto cardboard, cut out with a utility knife, and glued together.
