I see articles all over the internet announcing the dawning of new products for people of all ages. Most of them I yawn at, however, because for one reason or another it doesn’t look cool. Now I don’t know about you, but I sure like cool gadgets. That’s one reason I signed up for Facebook early on, because it was cool. So when I find cool gadgets, I like to talk about them.
This gadget looks pretty awesome. The idea behind this digital camera came from Taiwanese entrepreneur George Lin. Now I spent a year in Taiwan, so I understand a fair amount of their culture and absolutely loved being there. George grew up in a traditional home, and like many Taiwanese had a large family with very little to spend on cool stuff like cameras and photos. He wanted to change that so he went to work on an inexpensive digital camera. The result was a paper-made camera called Paper Shoot that only costs $50!
There’s a reason this camera was made for kids. It features a water-repellent case made of paper, can survive the accidental drop, only uses 2 AAA batteries and is easy on the parents budget. In addition, the child can also draw their own designs on the camera, hence why it was made of paper, to personalize their camera and we all know kids do that anyway, so my kid needs that. (or even be used for company brands, more on that in a bit). Not only that, but the camera also shows off four built-in photo effects and external camera lenses for the older child.
But if you didn’t think that was cool enough, just wait till you hear what they have planned for the next camera. They are looking to increase photo quality to 5MB, improve image stabilization, and make it compatible with LEGO bricks (for further camera customization).
Paper Shoot caught the eye of Hello Kitty and the Presidential Palace of Taiwan, so they are developing a custom designed line for them. The above picture is what they hand out at the Presidential Palace to foreign dignitaries.
So if you’re looking for safe and fun gadget for the kids to have, or know of someone who would like this, share the news with them.
