The appeal of the old Polaroid camera is long-lasting and obvious, even if the cameras themselves might come and go. There’s just something cool about snapping a photo and having a tangible copy in your hands within seconds – which is the sensation being brought back by Prynt, a smartphone case that doubles as an instant photo printer.
Prynt will be available in both iPhone and Android compatible photos, and was designed with an emphasis on convenience and simplicity of use. All you have to do to use it is plug it in and start printing, giving you a real live photo that no amount of Facebook likes or comments can compete with.
I wasn’t joking when I said the appeal of a product like Prynt is wide-ranging, since the makers of the case have already more than quintupled their fundraising goal on Kickstarter. There’s still more than a month left to go, though, so you can check it out here, and get yours for a low introductory rate of $49.
