The artist created the original camera by combining an old, black-and-white video camera with a thermal receipt printer. The microcontroller built into the camera digitizes the shooting image and then prints it out on a thermal paper immediately even as the image is being captured. This unique device is something of a hybrid between a Polaroid and a digital camera.
