WTF: An IKEA-Branded Digital Camera?

The camera is made from cardboard, can store up to 40 pictures, has no zoom, and no image stabilization feature. It’s probably really cheap too. Anyone among you guys can provide us with more details about it? Let us know in the comments section below!

  1. oh yeah… awesome… a cardboard camera… my mothers iPhone is shaking in terror of being replaced

  2. It's a 2,3 megapixel camera and it's a free giveaway to promote the new PS 2012 furniture collection

  3. Are you seriously this far behind on the tech or stories that have been out for awhile? Who cares about this thing. We didn’t make it to the press conference when they handed them out and they aren’t for sale. Are you this far behind because you’re Canadian? Or are these stories getting stuck in customs at the borders and they are just getting delivered to you late?

    • From what I've seen, plenty of people haven't heard of this…

      You don't have to be rude you know. I do my best to pick stuff that I think people will like. If you do not like some of the content I put on here, just skip these posts.

  4. I have to say that for a promotional give-away this sure beats a stupid pen… I'd put it on par with the really nice logo bag I got at a sci-fi con last fall. Yeah, it's not going to take great pics but it's the kind of thing you can use in high risk instances…. like bungie jumping or babysitting your brother's kids.

  5. All I know is that it has 2.3 megapixels and they won't be for sale. It is only possible to win them in some kind of lottery. But in Germany for example, there will only be 40 or 50 cameras for the lucky winners.
    I think it would be a really nice toy if it had a build in lomo-effect or something like that. But it hasn't.

  6. I would really like to have one of these really cheap cameras, to mount on helium balloons, have on really messy trekking and such. Hopefully they'll sell them in the end:]

  7. Might be the perfect point of entry to digital photography for children. Basic? Sure. But probably also very goof proof.
