How To Make A Working Lens Out Of Sand And Rocks

How To Make A Working Lens Out Of Sand And Rocks

If you are particularly keen to difficult DIY projects, this one may be for you.

Andy George of How To Make Everything redefines the concept of DIY with this project: a lens build from scratch using raw sand, rocks, and metal, and a huge amount of skills too, I guess.

Previously, Andy built a pinhole camera, as you can see in the video below.
