As we all know, Leica is not really famous for its affordable prices. As a matter of fact, the company recently launched a $24K kit designed in collaboration with Lenny Kravitz. But now even us who can’t afford Leica gear can have at least something inspired by it: a wooden music box that costs mere $8.94.
This little music box is available on Amazon from different sellers, but here’s one for under $9. If you want a square version, you’ll have to pay extra and it will set you back $9.35. You can remove the back of the “camera” to see the mechanism playing music. And while the music plays, the lens spins around. Here’s how it looks:
I personally enjoy seeing non-photographic products inspired by photo gear. My favorite ever must be this chocolate Nikon – it’s chocolate and it’s Nikon, what more could I wish for? A Nikon cake is also pretty awesome if you’re a Nikon shooter and like desserts as I do. Here are a few more photography-inspired gizmos:
- Lens-inspired watches
- Lens-shaped ring box
- Lens-inspired wireless charger
- Aperture-inspired universal wrench
- Paper camera kit replica
As for the Leica music box, I like this little toy: it’s inspired by a camera, and I generally like music boxes because they remind me of childhood. Plus, it’s definitely the only Leica I could ever afford. Have you seen any other interesting gear-inspired gadgets? Let us know in the comments.
