Long before Google Glass … there was the Camera Lucida.

The what?
The camera lucida.
It’s a prism on a stick! For making realistic drawings!
It used to be everywhere.
A portable version hasn’t been manufactured in generations.
And we’re bringing it back.
Really inexpensively.
For artists and art students everywhere.

We have designed the NeoLucida: the first portable camera lucida to be manufactured in nearly a century — and the lowest-cost commercial open source camera lucida ever designed. In manufacturing a camera lucida for the 21st century, our aim is to stimulate interest in media archaeology—the tightly interconnected history of visual culture and imaging technologies.



Want to try the NeoLucida? It’s not too late to purchase your tickets! We hope to see you in Cambridge in September. It’s going to be an event filled with a community of awesome!
