Peanut, The Camera Van

Wired News reports on a very cool idea; converting an old mail-delivery truck to a fixed-aperture, fixed-focal-length camera, using a lens from an old submarine periscope. Dubbed “Peanut,” this project is the brainchild of Shaun Irving, who took a “harebrained scheme” and turned it into one hell of a pinhole camera. “Irving is hoping to attract corporate sponsors to finance his planned cross-country trip.” I hope he gets some backing, as I really admire what he’s come up with.
