Pablo Garcia recently created an optical device that allows the user to trace images in real life.
The artist and SAIC professor’s invention called, “NeoLucida XL,” –is a contemporary and portable take on the two century old Camera Lucida, an instrument which reflects rays of light using a prism to allow objects in real life to be traced. The NeoLucidaXL, an updated version of the first iteration, features a large mirror and glass which makes it easier to draw the “ghost image,” while also being portable.
