Note that -- as I pen these words -- for a $12 pledge there's still an "Open-Source Special, DIY/Tinkerer's Kit" that includes two custom-fabricated, specially-silvered NeoLucida prisms so you can make your own camera lucida design!

I saw the Kickstarter project and with my interest peaked, headed over the Apple App Store. As they say, there's an app for that. $4.99. It does essentially the same thing.

I think I heard about that app -- but doesn't it just use the iPad's camera to present a faint image in the iPad's screen that you then trace around? I suppose you coudl then print this off and fill in the details. Have you used the app? Can you tell us about it?

One could connect a digital camera (or a computer with a digital photograph) to a PC projector. Projecting the image onto a piece of paper or a large screen would allow unlimited time for tracing and leisurely detailing of the image.

That's not a bad idea at all -- I could use this to amaze my wife with my (artistic) prowess

I use the Camera Lucida app. With my iPad. It works better than the traditional camera lucida, Art-o-graph, or any other optical image transfer tool that I have encountered. I, too, pledged on the Kickstarter campaign, and will receive mine in the first batch – I mainly did it out of curiosity, and add to my collection of traditional Camera Lucida's.

Can you show us some examples of your work with the iPad App?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
