Great Kickstarter funded project to build a 6x4.5 film camera, and take it around the US,

Oh - I meant 6 x 4.5 foot negatives! In a 35 foot long, wood & leatherette view camera...

Yeah, that one looks cool and I think I'll join in on helping fund it.

There's another good one on Afghan street photographers who use box cameras for both shooting and developing on the spot:

I mentioned both on a different board here - http://f295.f295.org/uploads/Blah.pl?m-1329359735/

This smells like a project by someone with modest technical ability and an insatiable lust for financing spectacular but screwball projects with other people's money. It has been discussed and analyzed on other forums.
