If for some reason, you have around two thousand drinking straws just lying around the house, you can fashion this DIY camera that Flickr user wheehamx made! He fashioned a camera by using almost 1,800 straws and loading them up inside a light-tight cardboard box. Surprisingly, that’s it! There’s no lenses or pinholes. It’s just the straw box in all its glory.

wheehamx has access to x-ray film so that is what he uses for this unique way of photography.
