Cameras are one of those electronic segments that follow the thinner sleeker sexier mantra of design. Well what if you want something clunky, bulky, and straight-up geeky? I give you this simple concept: a digital camera with a View-Master theme. This design is timely, as 3D digital photography is growing in popularity.
I designed the SD card slot to be on top of the device, just like the photo disk slot of the View-Master, though it can be placed elsewhere. The lever on the side would be used to take pictures, though an alternate button could be placed on top (I forgot to include one). That lever could also be used to cycle through stored pictures – how cool would that be?
Ideally it would feature a 3D LCD screen (like the 3DS) for capturing and viewing images. But if you prefer to see 3D the old-fashioned way, then the polarized goggle lenses are available.

Love your ideas – The View-Master products all bring back great memories as a child. I’d certainly buy one!
Thanks! Some of my favorite ideas wield a lot of nostalgic currency. They celebrate the past. I want one too!
Just shut up and build it already! I would pay $500 for this, EASY.
If I was able to pitch to companies, I would use your comment as an endorsement! Would be nice to work for Mattel and suggest they make this.
