As always – bringing you the burning news first: hardware startup Prynt shows off their latest prototypes of their smartphone Polaroid cases, which contain built-in printers so you can instantly get a copy of that selfie with your best friends.
The small startup just across the channel in France have been working on turning your smartphone into a Polaroid camera. The design is simple – your smartphone sends your photo via Bluetooth to the case which prints your photo. It kinda of reminds me of the old GameBoy Colour printer, remember that…
At the moment it takes about 50 seconds from photo opp to printed picture but can only hold one piece of paper at a time. The planned consumer version though will hold 10-30 sheets of paper and take fewer than 30 seconds to print!
It will cost around $99 (£63) when first made available through their Kickstarter early next year. They will be compatible with the iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6 and maybe even the 6+ and a couple of the Galaxy phones. We think this would be an awesome bit of kit to have – perfect for that ‘on-the-spot-cant-possibly-wait-to-print-selfie’ (cos that’s a thing!)
