Every once in a while, I get the urge to print out one of my digital photos. I would do it more often but it is always such a hassle.
Not anymore. A young French company, called Prynt, is very close to introducing a way to turn your smartphone into a Poloroid camera.
Prynt CEO, Clément Perrot, said that they created a smartphone case with a built-in photo printer. This is how it works. The companion app sends photos to the case via Bluetooth and then prints it by heating paper filled with ink. The process only takes about 30 seconds.
It’s quite remarkable and I was very impressed when I saw the first demonstration of this technology. Watch it on the two videos I have included here.
The case retails approximately at $99. Paper is extra. The company is currently raising money on Kickstarter and should be in full production shortly.
