Your camera can be seen as a development of the lens-to-cassette design:
As the type 110 cassette forms a kind of of body in its self, it only needs a lens/shutter, a barrel, a wind knob, a release and a aiming aid to make a camera out of it. That assembly can be extremely small. Smaller than the cassette itself.
Your sample forms a nearly complete body and has a optical finder. I like the wind-button.
