There’s an old saying that everything old is new again and it could not be more true for this tech.
In the digital era of Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and other social media platforms, having physical images that resemble the Polaroid age may seem old-fashioned and out of place. This is because many people in this modern era use their phones to take pictures that they can digitally share with friends and family over social media platforms without the need of printing tangible photos. While that’s the modern way of life as far as photos are concerned, it is difficult to refute that at one point or the other, you may need a physical photo that is printed just like in the old Polaroid days.
For those who require vintage physical photographs, there is a super-cool gadget that seems to enable the comeback of this old-fashioned style of photos. Known as Prynt Case, this is a phone case that enables photo lovers to instantly print their phone pictures just like the outdated Polaroid. The Prynt Case, which has a Polaroid-like box, attaches to a range of phones such as iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones, and lets the user print inkless images through its thermal printing technology.
The gadget that was designed by an upcoming team based in San Francisco attaches to the phone just like any other ordinary case, but can bust out of the box when it is needed to print a photo. This retro-looking gadget that brings back the memories of the Polaroid era uses narrow pieces of Zink photo papers to print photos that are stored on the phone.
In addition to the Pyrnt’s Case amazing abilities, the gadget has a super-cool feature that enables the user to augment real photos. This amazing app (you can download the app once you’ve bought Prynt Case) enables the user to take a short six-second video that can be attached to the photos on the phone through cloud. It also allows the user to add filters, stickers and edit the photos before they are printed.
While the Prynt app is just an innovative addition, the Prynt Case that costs around $150 is based on a vintage technology. It is all about having fun in a way that is close to the old printing Polaroid cameras.
