The camera obscura (Latin for "dark room"; "darkened chamber") is
an optical device that projects an image of its surroundings on a
screen. It is used in drawing and for entertainment, and was one of
the inventions that led to photography. The device consists of a
box or room with a hole in one side. Light from an external scene
passes through the hole and strikes a surface inside where it is
reproduced, upside-down, but with color and perspective preserved.
The image can be projected onto paper, and can then be traced to
produce a highly accurate representation
