    Design your own camera lucida with this Open-Source Special, a DIY Tinkerer's Kit! We're convinced our NeoLucida design is pretty good -- but your design might be even better. As we've explained, the NeoLucida is "basically" just a prism on a stick, but that prism is difficult to source. In this reward, we're offering two of our custom-fabricated, specially-silvered NeoLucida prisms, so that you can make (and mod) your own camera lucida design! We hope you'll share your design with the rest of the world -- on Thingiverse, Instructables, or elsewhere online. This reward includes our handsome sticker, and shipping anywhere in the United States.
