They say that if you set a 1,000,000 monkeys at 1,000,000 typewriters for 1,000,000 years and let them type randomly at the machines, one of those monkeys will end up accidentally writing the complete works of William Shakespeare.
Similarly, I wonder, if we sat down 1,000,000 monkeys with a ton of LEGO bricks, will they end up building a fully functional camera.

Lego Enthusiast Bshikin build a camera from Lego parts and added quite a bit of automation using Lego Mindstorms (Lego for building machines). And the code is available via Google Code.
The Camera features include automated exposure meter, automated shutter and mechanical film advance. The Pretty nifty for a few Lego bricks.
