The Punch Camera is just like any other digital camera, but with a twist. You can still load your photos onto a computer via USB, but the Punch also has a series of pins that you can use to literally punch a rasterized image onto a piece of paper. You lose a lot of definition and color, but there’s an undeniable charm to the finished result.
“This is a camera which was inspired by the loss of tangible memories,” writes designer Matty Martin of his concept. “It is meant to connect both physical and digital while minimizing excess materials and the hardships in sharing images… The Punch aligns a set of pins and then uses the force of the user to perforate a regular piece of paper. ”
