Wired - The Things We Loved This Week

Wired has an article that talks about Pentax....
QuoteQuote:
Tech That Lets Its Freak Flag Fly

There's no accounting for taste. Roberto Baldwin seems to think that the gold-and-snakeskin Pentax LX SLR is one of the most-hideous items in gadget history, while I think it might be the best thing that has ever existed. Besides, it's not even the craziest colored camera Pentax has created. Boldly designed/colored devices may be polarizing, but it's usually a lot of fun to look at pictures of them. Let Roberto be your guide through the weird and wonderful world of dramatically hued gadgetry.

Haha that gold LX is secretly awesome. I wouldn't turn it down! The rainbow coloured K-x is another story however...

"craziest colored camera Pentax has created"?



I still harbor a secret desire for the Robot edition...

Pentax Unveils "Robot Version" Of The K-r DSLR | TechCrunch



I love how it looks like the robot faces were drawn in with a sharpie. Heck, they only made 100. I bet that's exactly what they did.

Oh, Japan...
