Check out our DIY Twin Lens Camera Kit in all its DIY glory!
Tiffany made this neato stop-motion of her building the camera.
I really want to pick one of these things up. They’re so cheap, too!
You’ll soon be able to directly upload your photos from Hipstamatic to Instagram.
You’ll even be able to autotag your photo with the lens, film, and flash you used. Hipstamatic’s the first app that Instagram has opened up their API to.
I’ve wanted this since the advent of Instagram. When it came out, I thought, “Well, that’s nice, but I already have a lo-fi camera app that I like, can’t I just use that?” I’ve never bothered keeping up an Instagram photo stream because it was just too cumbersome. Now, it’ll be easy.
Relics - by Cody Hamilton
Relics is a project playing off the idea that the white Greek statues that we see now were once bright, colorful and vibrant. I wanted to bring that idea to the most colorful and vibrant decade ever, THE 80’s!

Retro and minimalist; gnarly!
Triple-plus awesome! I immediately recognized it as an Atari 810 Disk Drive. I spent a lot of time as a youth shoving disks into one of those things.
If it’s a boot disk, you put it in, close the door, then turn on the drive. It goes “ERNT”, spins for five seconds or so, and stops with another “ERNT”. Then you turn on the Atari 800. The disk spins up again, you cross your fingers, and with luck you boot into whatever was on the disk. In my case, frequently, a menu of games Dad brought home from work.
COOLER AS VANS
Sweet. How many can you ID? Bonus points that they did Greased Lightnin’.
Got jail broken, got Ultima V running! Follow my other blog, ultimavforipad, for the deets!
I totally had this one when I was a kid. You could put it up to your ear, press buttons, and hear the ultrasonic tones. It meant that you could oftentimes point the remote away from the TV, and it would still work.
In addition to TV, many an Atari game was played on that Zenith set.
