A day at a theme park is supposed to be filled with laughter, thrilling rides, and tons of terrible fried food. But lately, it seems more and more attractions are malfunctioning, leading to tragedies both in the U.S. and abroad.

The latest story comes from Kishkinta amusement park in Chennai, India. Twenty employees were kept in the park after hours to test out a new ride, the Disco Dancer. What started out as a fun tilt-a-whirl-style ride quickly turned disastrous when it fell from nearly 15 feet in the air.

One employee perished during the ride.

While it’s hard for many parents to say no when their kids beg to go to the park for an afternoon of fun, stories and tragedies like this make the decision just a little bit easier. If you’d like to read up on the safety of your local parks and how you can educate your kids on safe riding, go here.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the employee who was killed and the others who were injured.

It seems like a new device comes out every week, and because visual social media is having a moment, many of those devices come in the form of seriously awesome (and seriously expensive) cameras. Beauty bloggers spend hundreds on the latest lenses, and Instagram photographers snap up just about every iPhone photo attachment that hits the market.

But what if you’re a more casual camera enthusiast? Well, this novelty device might be just what you need.

Universe, meet the item that’s clumsily translated into English as the “Paper Like a Digital Camera.”

This tiny device is only 6 millimeters thick, but it can take photos and record what are essentially cellphone-quality videos. Not bad for something that’s the same thickness as a piece of card stock.

Minuscule camera parts are stuffed between retro-style paper components. Each device comes with an LED light that indicates battery life and a microSD card that holds 16 GB of data.

All you have to do to transfer your photos to a different device is plug the built-in USB terminal into a drive. Easy as pie, kids.

And if you want one, you can head on over to this site.

To see it in action before you punch in your credit card number, check out the video below:

I personally won’t be rushing to get my hands on one of these, but I guess it’s pretty cool that people who have always wanted retro-looking paper cameras that take questionable photos and videos can now have the device of their dreams.
