The creator of this tiny camera made two mistakes. One: it's styled like a Lomography Fisheye camera, but can't shoot fisheye photos. Two: they're not for sale yet. I demand ten.

According to creator Francesco Capponi, this little toy-like cam is a working, snapping pinhole camera, capable of taking photos like the one below. Ok, so it's hardly going to give Lomography a run for its money, but the small size is mind-blowing. [Flickr via MAKE via Gearfuse via Katiesol]
