When things start to get really advanced in technology, it can sometimes be hard to understand exactly what it is that our gadgets do. Well, of course we know what they will do, but understanding how they work and how things are accomplished within the mechanics are not always so clear. Some people strive to understand their gadgets, and they do so by completely disassembling them only to put them all together again. There is another layer of resourcefulness as well, and that is called Lego. Some builders out there concentrate on building gadgets entirely out of Lego to see if they can replicate the real deal with their creative blocks.
One such person is Carl-Frederic Salicath who recently previewed his build that is simply a working twin lens camera built entirely out of Lego (well, as far as the whole case that is). This build may not look like a million bucks, but it is sure to take some rather creative pictures. Carl-Frederic was even surprised himself how easy it was to create, and all that it really took was to build the case, ad a slider for the film and a couple of rolls to hold the film in place. It was a really simple build he says.
The build is based on the Twin-Lens Reflex Yashicaflex camera, and it works pretty much the same way. It’s fantastic that you can create working gadgets out of just Lego, don’t you think? If you can create a camera, what else can you build that will rival the real deal? I mean, when do you think we’ll see the first cell phone created entirely out of Lego? Of course it wouldn’t have all the intricate features, but more or less just a cell phone that you can call from? Who knows, right? Well, for now I am just going to sit here and think about how Carl-Frederic managed to put this thing together by looking at his description found on his website.
