How To: Make a Camera from a Pumpkin

created at: 11/01/2010

Each year, a UCC congregation in my neighborhood hosts a massive pumpkin sale to help send children to camp. While their urban parking lot may not be as festive as an out-in-the-sticks Pick Your Own patch, the charitableness and convenience can't be beat. Yesterday, post-Trick-or-Treat, I noted the sign had changed to "Free Pumpkins!" I snatched up four of the remaining 100 or so, and made quick work of cleaning them out and trying more of this year's favorite roasted pumpkin seed recipes.

Looks like I'm headed back there today, cause I just figured out how to turn one into a camera.

"Every year, this time of year, normal people nationwide gather 'round spreads of newspaper to carve glowing, ghoulish jack-o'-lanterns. And for about a month's-worth of sporadic lunch breaks, we, too, have been carving a pumpkin ... into a camera! Much to our amazement, it actually worked."

See how it's done at the NPR blog
