The NeoLucida is a portable camera lucida: an optical drawing aid that allows you to trace what you see. Based on century-old designs but comprehensively redesigned for the 21st century, the NeoLucida is perfect for artists, scientists, designers, or hobbyists-anyone who wants to draw.

Originally patented in 1807, by the 1830s camera lucidas were everywhere. Fine artists, scientists, naturalists, explorers, archeologists, architects-all used the camera lucida for drawing in the days before photography.

Our design is lightweight (7oz., or 199 g), sturdy, compact enough to fit in a handbag, highly adjustable, totally non-electronic, and effective in all lighting conditions. If you enjoy drawing from life, or if you're interested in experiencing for yourself how the Old Masters could possibly have created such accurate, lifelike drawings-then the NeoLucida is for you.

Designed in Chicago & Pittsburgh, USA by Pablo Garcia & Golan Levin.
Crowdfunded through Kickstarter.

But tricky to learn how to use it watched YouTube rather than instructions.

Unusable

Unfortunately, the area of observation covered by the tiny lens is much too small for me.

Great gadget assists in precise artwork sketches.

Works well for my needs in the field, outdoors. You should get one, too.

too hard to use

I found it disappointing, far too hard to use accurately, having to bend over and to hold my eye close to the tiny prism was impossible to maintain.

Yeah ..naa

I had high hopes as I design for metal laser cutting, tried to use this device a number of times but gave up due to the poor quality of the image. Yes, I know it says play with the lighting on both subject and drawing, I did, just frustrated, put it back in the bag and there it stays... novelty value only.
