    Default World’s First Camera Lens Calendar

    I’m sure some college student already had this idea but photographer Sharad Haksar beat ‘em to it with a real tangible product you might see in stores soon. The World’s First Camera Lens Calendar as he puts it, using the most venerable sign of a professional photographer to display the date. Each ring controls an aspect of the calendar but watch out 2032 because that’s when the world will end, at least in this iteration since it can’t go any further.

    It’s not clear whether it’s powered or requires some very dexterous manipulation but if the price is right, I could see it becoming one of those, “what do you get somebody who already has everything” gifts.

    $2000?

    I'd rather buy a Carl Zeiss lens and Blu-tack a card-calendar to it.

    Don't think its sells because its better than a normal clock/watch, just that its unique.... but then it seems useless to me
