Holga Goes Digital?

I was all over this as soon as I saw ABSOLUTMATERIALIST post it. Like many kewl kids these days, I also own a lomo camera. I've had a Diana+ for two years now and have only used it a handful of times. There was definitely an excitement that came when I first had it, but I quickly learned it was going to turn into an expensive hobby. Buying the film, getting it developed, etc. It adds up. What I enjoyed most about my lomo camera was not knowing how the photos would come out. You point and shoot and hope for an awesome photo. 

I later moved onto another fun little toy, the Zumi Digital Camera. It was the perfect size to carry everywhere, took 8mm style video and shot saturated stills similar to those that I was getting with the Diana+. And, it was digital. Just take the micro SD card out, place it in a card reader and bam, I've got my photos/videos!

So now the Holga has gone digital and I'm twirling my fingers in anticipation. "Even though Holga D is a digital camera, in order to achieve its simplicity, it reduces the feature set to absolute minimum. Even the display is not there! So your photographs remain mysterious until you download the images. This makes the experience quite similar to the good old film based cameras."-ABSOLUTMATERIALIST.com

This is definitely a prototype, but if you get your hands on more info, please do share!
