Back before digital cameras, if you wanted to see your pictures right away, you needed an instant camera like the ones made by Polaroid. Instagram today owes much of its pseudo-retro aesthetic to the slightly blurry, washed-out photos so many of us who grew up in the 70′s and 80′s took with our Polaroids. Master of real-world objects replicated in LEGO, Chris McVeigh (powerpig) brings us the Polaroid Land Camera 1000.
For even more instant gratification, here’s an animated GIF showing off the excellent functionality that Chris built into his LEGO model:
If you love Chris’ Polaroid, don’t miss the LEGO Polaroid camera by the Arvo Brothers built back in 2007.
