Have you ever wanted to print a picture right from your smartphone? Well, that is now completely possible with the new gadget, SnapJet. Using Poloroid technology, SnapJet uses open source software to allow anyone to easily print photos from their smartphone, without even using an app.
SnapJet is a slim, portable instant film printer for your smartphone, it’s like a tiny copy machine you can carry anywhere! SnapJet prints on Fuji or Poloroid film and it’s design can support any smartphone. The printer also includes an OLED display, USB, and BLE connectivity. So all the DIY’ers and photographers out there can control exposures, hack, and reprogram the SnapJet to their liking.
Unlike other printing technologies, photographic processes predate modern electronics. The earliest photographic emulsions date back to the 1850’s, which means they don’t require motors, batteries, or integrated circuits. This is why the SnapJet is able to be shrunk down to less than 7 millimeters, and you never have to charge it.
SnapJet is currently seeking backing on Kickstater, and is very close to hitting the goal of $150,000.
