Walnut / camera

Walnut
Walnut

A lot of people just don’t stop turning repetitively the walnuts in their one hand. This simple behavior gives people a little fun and they think turning the walnuts is good for hand’s health. ‘Walnut’ is a camera that does not require batteries. Name implies, this camera came in the form of a walnut. It is powered by kinetic energy and is charged by giving it a turn like people do with walnuts. Existing products that are available for self-charging usually have difficulties in turning or rolling. In contrast, when you need to take a picture, ‘Walnut’ will be already charged with your ‘turning walnut’ habit.
