This Might Look Like A Piece Of Paper, But It Does Something Incredible

It seems like a new device comes out every week, and because visual social media is having a moment, many of those devices come in the form of seriously awesome (and seriously expensive) cameras. Beauty bloggers spend hundreds on the latest lenses, and Instagram photographers snap up just about every iPhone photo attachment that hits the market.

But what if you’re a more casual camera enthusiast? Well, this novelty device might be just what you need.

Universe, meet the item that’s clumsily translated into English as the “Paper Like a Digital Camera.”

This tiny device is only 6 millimeters thick, but it can take photos and record what are essentially cellphone-quality videos. Not bad for something that’s the same thickness as a piece of card stock.

Minuscule camera parts are stuffed between retro-style paper components. Each device comes with an LED light that indicates battery life and a microSD card that holds 16 GB of data.

All you have to do to transfer your photos to a different device is plug the built-in USB terminal into a drive. Easy as pie, kids.

And if you want one, you can head on over to this site.

To see it in action before you punch in your credit card number, check out the video below:

I personally won’t be rushing to get my hands on one of these, but I guess it’s pretty cool that people who have always wanted retro-looking paper cameras that take questionable photos and videos can now have the device of their dreams.

Believe It Or Not, These Futuristic Inventions Currently Exist. The Future Is NOW.

The future is now. You may not realize it, but we have access to much of the technology that seemed like nothing but science fiction just a few years ago. Perhaps our collective disappointment in not having hoverboards that we can ride around a la Marty McFly in Back to the Future Part II and III has overshadowed our incredible accomplishments. Seriously though, the technology we have to work with is amazing.

…Okay, fine, the technology that some people have to work with is amazing. That said, don’t underestimate how cool simply being able to observe from afar. Check this technology out!

Wow. These things are amazing. If you’re feeling left out from the future, just remember what you’re reading this on. It might not be a smart watch, but it should keep you entertained until we all have access to flying cars. First one to the moon has to take the other one’s powered exoskeleton to the dry cleaners.
