Now, Ikea, the owner and worldwide franchiser of the concept to offer functional, well-designed furniture at low prices is also looking at offering a single-use digital camera with a cardboard exterior.
According to Digital Trends, the camera is “designed by Jesper Kouthoofd, the KNÄPPA (which incidentally sounds like Snap-pa) disposable digital camera measures 4.13 by 2.56-inch and is held together with two plastic screws. It is capable of taking 2.3 megapixel images, and the entire system runs on a single circuit board that contains the functionality programming and camera sensor. The memory, as we know, is capable of up to 40 pictures before users have to manually transfer them out to their computers using the foldaway USB stick on the upper corner. To clear the photos, insert a paper clip or a similarly thin stick into the reset button and hold for five seconds to reset the memory.”
Since the battery design does not allow for replacement without ripping the cardboard body apart, once the charge is depleted the camera is destined for the recycle bin.
