We miss the days of editing thousands of slides in order to choose the right shot. Okay, maybe we don’t. There is and always will be something special about holding a print in your hand though. Handing someone an album of photographs from a recent adventure is still, even in 2013, more impressive than a Flickr gallery. Considering the amount of photos taken with Instagram are constantly on the rise, it was only a matter of time until The Impossible Project (the guys who brought back Polaroid film) created a way to print all those square beauties straight from your smartphone.
The Impossible Instant Lab will print any digital image from your iPhone or iPod Touch. Select a photo from your phone, place it on the Instant Lab and in a matter of seconds, you will have an analog photo ready for sharing. The Lab features a four element, high-quality, coated glass lens, along with a metal dark slide and shutter mechanism. Smartphone and film are not included. Pick one up here for $299.
