pentax: LEGO style optio NB1000

‘safari’ themed pentax optio NB1000

japanese imaging company pentax‘s optio NB1000 point and shoot camera has a front panel which is covered in a LEGO-like piece compatible with nanoblocks (a construction block system similar to LEGO) from japan’s diablock. different sizes of these blocks can be attached to the face of the camera so that you can personalize it with patterns, mini sculptures. the blocks also have more than just an aesthetic appeal. they can be used to help capture your images – arrangement around the lens can form frames for your pictures. image via imaging resource

the camera comes in a two versions: a monochromatic black and white version, or two-tone green and black. image via imaging resource
