Fun Stuff

Paper Digital Camera Is 6 mm Thin, Shoots Still, Video and Records Sound

We haven’t done enough of it, and so we thought we’d start the New Year with a Fun Stuff before the craziness that’s the CES 2016 crashes down unto us in a few days (January 6-9).

You know digital camera technology is a no-brainer anymore when they can fit a digital camera into a 6 mm thin cardboard wafer. The “Paper like a digital camera” has 1) a LED light, 2) an ON/OFF button, 3) a MODE button, 4) a microSD/SDHC card slot and 5) a USB 2.0 terminal.

Technical specifications:
– Still images: 1,280 × 1,024 pixels, JPEG
– Video: 720 × 480 pixels at 30 fps, AVI format (MotionJPEG)
– Audio: Monaural, MP3 format
– Storage: microSD/SDHC (up to 16GB, not included)
– Dimensions: 6.8 × 2.0 × 0.6 cm
– Weight: about 43g

Price: 3,299 yen (including tax) or about US $28 / CAD $38

At 1.3 MP, you can expect the images to be for novelty use only.

At a price of or about US $28 / CAD $38, it’s pretty steep for a novelty item, but you get two paper cameras and a convenient carry strap (for those who of you who may be thinking that it’s still too heavy and bulky to fit into your shirt pocket, ha, ha).

For the person who can’t afford a proper digital camera — or who has everything already — this might be the perfect gift. However, it looks like you have to order in quantities of 16, so include friends and coworkers.
