I guess I'm sort of surprised that pixelvision type stuff is so coveted but a tube recorder like this is junk (heavy junk at that). Figured especially here there'd be some kooky applications of it. Oh well.

Find someone that can bronze baby shoes. That camera requires a lot of light, probably more electronics than you've got in hand and as a reward, probably isn't much better than the Pixelvision.

And if you've pointed it lens-down, the tube now has junk on it (internally) so the image will not be very good.
