Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Pinhole LEGO
I suspect this is probably the world's first medium format film camera made entirely from LEGO. Even if it isn't, it's an absolutely brilliant idea. It uses a pinhole as a simple lens, so you don't have to worry about fashioning an optically respectable lens from nothing but LEGO blox. The designer managed to incorporate a working film counter, too.

I'm looking forward to the inventor posting a few pictures from this little conversation starter. Retro Thing has more to say on the subject of Medium format photography here and pinhole cameras here.
