Ikea Cardboard Digital Camera

Ikea, the popular Swedish home products company that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture like tables, bookcases, desks and beds recently ventured into the technology market with the introduction of their Uppleva all-in-one HDTV entertainment center – TV, Bluray/DVD player, 2.1 virtual surround sound system with wireless subwoofer, WiFi-ready, etc.

If that isn’t cool enough, the furniture giant also revealed via press kits in the recent Milan Design week event that they would be also producing and selling a digital camera. What makes Ikea’s digital camera unique is that it will be made out of cardboard. The cardboard digital camera will feature a swing-out USB plug, a viewfinder, shutter key and erase button. It will run on two AA batteries and can hold up to 40 pictures via the built-in memory stick. For now, there are now details regarding the sensor, lens, storage capacity, pricing or availability.

Since the camera is made of cardboard, its safe to assume that the product was built to be disposable. However, unlike other conventional disposable cameras, the Ikea cardboard camera is digital so logically it’s reusable – the user can download the photos, clear out the memory and reuse it.
