The ‘Big Shot’ Camera looks very interesting.
It has been well thought out as an educational product and comes with an interactive guide that explains all the science behind the different camera components.
I like the philosophy of the Big Shot cameras creator Prof Shree Nayar as well, ‘It's about getting kids' hands dirty. In an age when software rules I want kids to know how to build hardware”.
They are not available in the UK yet but I think I’ll be getting one to have a play with when they do appear on this side of the pond.
Good article on the BBC website on the Big Shot as well.
