Pacam: Paper Camera for Poor Country

Before you discard your old cell phone, think of the possibility of it lighting up a child’s life. Allow me to explain, data suggests that millions of phones are discard globally but very few make it to the recycle bin. If we take a fraction of these discarded phones and convert them into a low-cost camera for the under-privileged, then we can encourage a new breed of trigger-happy kids.

  • Pacam is a small, low-cost children’s camera made with the parts of old cell phones.
  • It uses the camera components and the LCD screen.
  • These parts are combined with economical cardboard and rechargeable AAA batteries.
  • The project aims to encourage children to forge their own dreams.

Pacam is a 2013 red dot award: design concept winning project.
