The Stampy Digital Camera reminds me of those old “How To Draw Comic-Books” guides. You’d get a step one (stick men), step two (circles and rectangles) and a step three (the amazing, finished artwork). Somewhere there was a missing step 2.5, which was where the actual magic happened.
The Stampy also has this missing step. The camera takes a picture (step 1). You then pull it apart to reveal a rubber-stamp and ink-pad within (step 2) and then you simply slap it down onto a piece of paper to get a monochrome rendition of the photo you took (step 3). The missing step: How on earth does your picture get turned from photons of light into nodules of rubber?
