Colon Viewer

I have a real weakness for portable slide viewers. I already have several but am always on the lookout for unusual ones, like the one I used for the Kodak Pi.

This one caught my eye at one of the first sales this year, a ‘Colon’ branded slide viewer, in its original box.

Aside from the ‘why would you’ name it’s a lovely little thing, the colour and style are great, but its standout feature is the pop-up viewing lens, it has a really tactile action.

I’m really looking forward to making something with it, though I don’t want to mess with it too much. Right now I’m thinking of staying true to the original piece and having a Pi and small LCD inside displaying, well, a slideshow.
