    I think some people on the Wired discussion thread just don't get it. Toy = fun = ephemeral.

    Of course you could buy a 'proper' camera for the £75 it costs over here, but thats not the point, is it?

    What saddened me was the comment (although I expect it was meant tongue-in-cheek) "Or use one of the iPhone apps such as CameraBag to create similar effects..."

    Sigh.

    That magazine, and apparently many of it's readers, tend toward fixation on the technology itself rather than that ideas driving the technology, at least as I see it...

    I think he was referring to the plastic lens and the distortions it introduces.
