Even though you might have only a hazy memory of last Saturday night, your smartphone has the pictures to document it. And now you can print those hard-to-remember moments direct to film with SnapJet.
About the size of three stacked iPhones, the SnapJet is a portable printer that works with any smartphone to print credit card-size pictures, effectively turning your phone into a Polaroid camera.
Here’s how it works: the SnapJet uses a fiber optic polymer to scan the light emitted from your smartphone’s display and transfer it directly onto the instant film below. Just push the device’s single button and it’ll print out a photo a few seconds later. The best part? You get to watch the image appear on the film, just like you could with the old Polaroids. Fully charged, the battery prints about 50 photos.
No cords. No requisite software. And just a single press of a button. With the SnapJet, you can make those memories a lot more accessible—for either the refrigerator or a blackmail-size manila envelope. Who said film is dead?
