The Rubikon 2: World’s Simplest Pinhole Camera by Jaroslav Juřica

Rubikon is a paper cut-out, which becomes a functioning camera (camera obscura) after gluing together. In 1979 the ABC magazine published a jigsaw called Dirkon, which paraphrased the single-lensed reflex cameras, which used to be very popular at that time. The cut-out Rubikon was first published in 2005 in the 8. issue of the ABC magazine, 25 years after introducing Dirkon.

The second version of Rubikon, The Pinhole Rebel was designed by Czech artist Jaroslav Juřica is even more user friendly and easy to build.
