It's a well documented fact that kids greatly enjoying taking things apart to see how they work. Columbia University in New York has made it their mission to create a camera that not only carries the capability to be assembled and dismantled, but created a product that could be used as an affordable platform for education. The Big Shot camera has been road tested by children all across the world and has been a huge hit and understandably so. The 6 year old MacGyver in us is just dying to get our hands on it. Although it takes a battery, it also has a hand crank on the side as it takes very little energy to actually take a photograph. So a few quick cranks and you're all set for some picture taking fun.
The kit isn't for sale quite yet, but is scheduled to be released shortly, we'll make sure to let you know when it hits the market! In the mean time, you can read up more about this cool new teaching tech toy from the Big Shot website.
