    Wow! These are so strangely beautiful.

  • Marina

    The best ideas are the ones so simple they make you ache with how you didn’t think of it. All those times I’ve turned off my crappy tv…

  • Dave

    wow, this is awesome!

  • defuca

    The TV as subject matter is really interesting. To me, turning off the TV represents the face of reality. Catch my drift?

  • Awesome concept and awesome execution!

  • mp

    TRON!

  • These are lovely, I really like how abstract they look… would never have guessed they were televisions!

  • Karen

    Wow–gorgeous!

    New interpretation of Dan Flavin. Like it.

  • emily

    wow…i remember sitting and turning the TV off over and over again as a small child trying to get a better look at that moment exactly. Not only does tha make these really satisfying, but they are also beautiful.

  • very nice concept =)

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
