The fine folks at Breakfast
have developed a rather impressive new toy - an Instagram
powered photo printer called Instaprint
. You can watch an introductory video here
but the basic gist is that their device utilizes the Instagram API looking for hashtags and/or specific location settings and prints out the photos with the same technique used in modern Polaroid cameras (i.e. Zink
tech). It even includes captions and comments on the printouts. I've no idea what their plan is for these devices other than to show off how awesome they are at making clever devices but I can absolutely see this making its way into every bar / music venue / restaurant with a clientele that understands what Instagram is (especially if Instagram expands their base to other platforms).
