I wonder how long it will be before there is a 3-D printer version. that would be so cool. I suppose you'd have to buy a lens but everything else could be printed. Now the thing that would be even more cool would be a 3-D printable digital camera with open source architecture and that way you could customize the camera to function exactly the way you want it.

Andy Warhol said that everyone in the future would have a moment of fame for 15 minutes. But it turns out that fame is just another word for originality. So I'm starting to wonder if in reality, everyone in the future will have an original idea that lasts for maybe 15 milliseconds.
