The NeoLucida is a drawing aid that allows you to trace what you see. It’s the first portable, authentic camera lucida to be manufactured in nearly a century. We love camera lucidas, and we think they can help people understand art history in provocative new ways—so we launched aKickstarter to help make this remarkable device widely available to students, artists, architects, and anyone who loves to draw from life. The response to our Kickstarter was remarkable — we received orders for more than 8500 devices — and so we’re now working to make even more NeoLucidas available. We hope you’ll agree that the NeoLucida allows exciting new ways of drawing, seeing, and thinking about the history of art and technology.
