The famous some-assembly-required Swedish furniture manufacturer Ikea has come up with a cute looking innovation to commemorate the 2012 Fuorisalone which is a design expo held in Milan recently. In the press kits that were given out to members of the media, Ikea included a cardboard digital camera that is powered by 2 AA sized batteries and equipped with an internal memory card capable of storing up to 40 photographs.
Once the camera’s storage space is filled up, users can swivel a little USB connector in the corner of the camera and proceed to transfer the necessary files onto another device for storage. The digital camera which makes use of a viewfinder as opposed to a screen which is found more commonly on digital cameras was made just for the event but there is no official announcement of this nifty little gadget making its way to the shelves of the Swedish company’s Furniture Stores.
