Word on the street says IKEA is dropping this adorable little digital camera into markets world-wide soon. We love it’s simple, athletic design and while, yes, we all own cameras, phones with cameras, laptops with cameras and otherwise, we’re a sucker for this lo-fi design reminiscent of the good old cardboard disposable cameras. Equipped with a USB port, batteries and little else, the new PS is being dubbed the world’s most affordable camera.
We can’t wait to watch what will inevitably become a global competition for the most creative use of this latest mini-gadget. Just what will world travelers, flash mobs and brides-to-be come up with? Like the affordably-designed laptops produced a few years back, will they soon be used to equip school villages in third world nations or will they simply become the hottest new party favor? In this over-exposed age, we all know the power of a camera lens. How will this cheap and tiny design impact our visual culture, or will it at all? Will you be buying the IKEA PS?
