Product Description

NeoLucida Drawing Aid

Years before the first photographic print, there was the camera lucida. Originally patented in 1807, this clever optical device by physicist Sir William Hyde Wollaston utilized a prism to project an image onto a piece of paper so it could be traced, a method that dramatically altered the way artists, naturalists, scientists, and architects created drawings from life.

Created by two art professors, the NeoLucida is the first portable camera lucida drawing aid to be manufactured in decades. Bringing the favored tool of the Old Masters to a new generation of artists and art lovers, the NeoLucida uses an optical trick to superimpose the scene in front of you onto a sheet of paper so that you can trace your subject with ease. Designed for impromptu art making, the lightweight design is compact enough to fit in a bag, highly adjustable, requires no power source, and is effective in all lighting conditions. Ages 9 years and up.

The NeoLucida Drawing Aid is featured in the Kickstarter@MoMA Design Store presentation, and was brought to life by 11,406 backers on Kickstarter.
