    Interesting. I would love to see what kind of images it can produce. Thanks!

    It doesn't actually produce images, rather image kits with instructions and extra pixels in the bag
    ...

    I can guarantee that if I had one there would be at least one pixel short.

    Wow.

    Funny thing is, when I went to Atlanta a month ago, I visited Ikea. I also noticed during that same trip a couple using a disposable film camera. I was floored.

    Oh Joy

    I bet the instructions on that will be up to their usual high standard and there will be at least one critical piece missing:laugh1:

    I purchased two night stands from Ikea for our bedroom. They are those put together type things. Funny thing was, the first one I put together had two extra screws. The second one was missing one of the same screws, LOL. It ended up working out nicely.

    If I understand the video the 'kamera' is more a marketing gimmick than anything else.

    Yes. It also has panoramic feature but the chair has to have swivel functionality.

    It's a marketing gimmick for sure, since they are giving it away for free with the purchase of a specific line of IKEA furniture.

    I didn't know it was designed by these guys! They are an exceptionally talented bunch of designers.
