"The NeoLucida is a portable camera lucida, an optical drawing aid that allows you to trace what you see. Based on century-old designs but comprehensively redesigned for the 21st century, the NeoLucida is perfect for artists, scientists, designers, or hobbyists--anyone who wants to draw."--Instructional booklet.
"We use a silvered prism, optimized for optical clarity, carefully encased in a custom anodized aluminum mount. The prism is supported by a highly adjustable gooseneck arm and a sturdy metal clamp. We even use a 1/4”-20 threaded bolt as the connection between the gooseneck arm and the prism holder--so your NeoLucida arm can easily double as a standard camera mount."--NeoLucida website.
"Designed in Chicago & Pittsburgh, USA, by Pablo Garcia & Golan Levin. Manufactured in partnership with Big Idea Design, LLC. Developed through Kickstarter crowdfuning. Made in China."--Instructional booklet.
