Make your own R2-D2 pinhole camera with these simple instructions I’ve posted on Flickr. I was initially inspired by Bre Pettis who hosts the Weekend Projects Vlog for MAKE magazine. Pettis gives his viewers a step-by-step video guide on how to construct their own pinhole camera here: Make Video Podcast: Weekend Projects – Make a Pinhole Camera and Darkroom
I took those basic instructions and gave it a Star Wars twist by making the pinhole camera look like R2-D2. It’s a fun project for kids and adults who not only want to make something cool from an old oatmeal container, a soda can, electrical tape and some paint, but it’s a terrific way to learn how a camera works and take dreamy photos.
Here’s the Flickr set:
