Anyone know if there is a digital pinhole camera?

I see there are DYI instructions to turn your existing digital camera into a pinhole camera, but I want a stand alone pinhole camera.

Looks like B&H are still selling film pinhole cameras . How hard would it be to put a digital sensor in one of them?

I have experimented using a lens cap which had been converted into a pinhole lens. I utilized it with both cropped sensor and full frame cameras. The results were disappointing. You really need a sensor area greater than of a 35mm full frame camera to get decent results. To show an example, the first image is what was produced using the pinhole lens cap with a Nikon D7100 cropped sensor camera.
The second image shows the result of enhancing the first image using Adobe Photoshop Express.
