The Lifeprint Photo Printer wirelessly prints videos, Instagram images, Snapchat creations, saved snaps and GIFs that come alive with AR.
By harnessing the power of its augmented reality app, printed stills burst into life when you hold them in front of your phone’s camera.
The idea is this Instagram for real photos becomes a social network for sharing actual snaps instead of digital images.
Lifeprint users can send photos with an embedded video to friends and family as well as like, comment and reshare pictures in the Lifeprint network.
The network also allows you to follow friends and print to any Lifeprint printer in the world because, well, you can.
Connectivity comes courtesy of the device being Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled and Lifeprint’s creators claim sharing is as easy as sending a text message.
There’s no messy toner either thanks to environmentally friendly ZINK (Zero Ink Printing Technology) photo paper.
Its advanced composite material uses embedded colourful dye crystals with a protective polymer outer layer. When heat is applied images magically appear.
Sticky-back paper makes it easy to display photos anywhere and decorate boring spaces with your best memories.
Anyone with an extra-creative streak can make use of the app’s full editing suite where you can customise prints with filters, memes, stickers and more.
The printer comes in two sizes either offering 2 x 3-inch snaps or larger 3 x 4.5-inch prints in line with classic instant film.
You’ll get up to 20 prints on one battery charge and the device is entirely portable. Happy snapping.
