A camera right out of Dickens

'Kodak 1881' has a Victorian look

Lindsey Pickett

If you really want to go retro, you might as well go all the way--not just to the funkadelic '70s. That's apparently was the thinking behind the "Kodak 1881" digital camera, which is reminiscent of a Victorian-era heirloom locket. "Inspired by the emotional connection and careful framing of locket photos, 1881 strives to create a more precious medium through which to share your memories, whether at home or on the street," designer Lindsey Pickett says. Specs and other details are scant, but GeekSugar says the locket-cam can be opened to reveal an LCD screen. We just hope that the photos don't all come out in sepia tones.
