If we thought the project was dead, we were wrong. It has resurfaced the Polaroid , that camera with instant revealed that many rooms have wallpaper with memories captured.
The massive theft of private photographs of famous people is making this camera again take center stage. A small French startup has created Prynt a housing that attaches to the smartphone and prints the photos made from mobile instantly.
The current version of this hardware takes about 50 seconds since the picture is taken until it is printed on the small printer riding Prynt . It is expected that the version to be released later and user level would take about 30 seconds to make the entire process through better integration of hardware and physical connection between the phone and the housing.
It is also envisaged that this version can reach between 10 and 30 printing images, as reported by Techcrunch .
Its operation is based on Bluetooth technology as it is and the information goes mobile to the housing with the printer. This is where the paper is heated and soaked with ink to result in tangible photography.
The CEO of the company Clement Perrot ensures that this cover will have a starting price of $ 99 , ie about 80 euros to about change.
It will be launched in early 2015 and now available for smartphones with 4-inch screen although from to say they are working on their adaptation to phablet segment, ie phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or iPhone 6 Plus, with screens passing of 5.5 inches.
