Gadget Monday: Are you shooting Nikon or Cannon? I shoot Ikea…

Product designer Jesper Kouthoofd of Teenage Engineering A.B. build what they describe as the “world’s cheapest cardboard camera”.

It’s clearly an “Ikea design”, with a quirky, hard-to-pronounce name – KNĂ„PPA – and Ikea-style assembly instructions. Oh yes! Some assembly required! Two plastic thumbscrews need to be removed and replaced so you can pop in a pair of AAA batteries 🙂

Watch the product introduction by the designer himself below:
