2.3 megapixel, 40 photo capacity, USB interface, made of cardboard

Supposedly these will be given away for free in store some time later this year. Its actually a kind of cool idea, just a few years too late. Most people walk into an IKEA with a better camera already in their pocket, and it includes the capability to make phone calls and send text messages too.

Still, I'll be curious to try one out and make pick up a few extra for my 2-year-old son to play with. Would be interesting to see if I can get him to work it and set him loose in the backyard and see what he comes up with. And unlike my iPhone or 550D I won't care if he drops it in the mud or steps on it.

I think they already said they aren't planning on releasing the camera as a product.  It was just a promo for a press event. :(

Trouble is, by the time you've worked out the instructions (translated from Swedish) and assembled it from all the parts ... you'll probably have missed the shot.
