Pretend you still need film with Yashica’s digital camera – Engadget

Posted: Wednesday, October 11, 2017

The idea is to provide an analog experience with digital tech — once you load the ISO 400 B&W cartridge, you can’t shoot in color, for instance. And the winding forces you to slow down and perhaps concentrate harder on each shot, hopefully yielding better pictures at the end. The camera otherwise seems, and looks, pretty cheap and plasticky compared to iconic Yashica cameras of yore (the trademark was purchased…

This tiny mobile phone is also a fidget spinner – The Verge

Posted: Tuesday, October 10, 2017
