The camera itself is a 3-megapixel affair, which produces image quality at a level you'd expect from a smartphone camera. But, it does offer some pretty cool features. The lens housing swivels to reveal a few different lenses including a pano mode and a 3D setting. There's a hand-crank to crank up the camera's battery if there's no opportunity to charge it. And the online components of the instructions teach fundamental scientific lessons while helping kids put the camera together.
