Olympus 3D Camera Carved Out of a Block of Wood

Yeah, yeah, we know, there are a lot of camera posts here, but keep in mind that Photokina 2006 starts tomorrow, so we need to show you at least a few cameras. But wait. This one's different, an Olympus prototype of a 3D camera, and it's made of Japanese cypress wood. Not much info is available about the camera except that it uses a microscope lens. But that cypress wood body is said to be harder than any plastic, and hey, it looks positively gorgeous. We want one.
