Shoot people with this non-lethal pinhole camera

This pinhole camera is slightly different in that there's no viewfinder to look through. Instead, users are encouraged to simply aim the photogun as accurately as possible and blindly pull the trigger.

Pew! Pew! Pew! Snap. Franziska Dierschke

Franziska Dierschkeare is the designer behind this concept camera, a unique take on the kitschy toy camera popularized by the Lomography Diana, Holga, and the Supersampler...all of which can be found at your local Urban Outfitters, if you dare.

This pinhole camera is slightly different in that there's no viewfinder to look through. Instead, users are encouraged to simply aim the photogun as accurately as possible and blindly pull the trigger. Dierschke claims that this method of shooting puts less emphasis on picture and more on the "playful" act of taking pictures.

Sounds like fun, but I think I'll stick with my old standby camera for those surprise candid shots--not everyone appreciates a gun in their face, even if it is neon green. Check out the slideshow below for flicks of the gun in action, as well as some sample shots.
