impossible instant lab polaroid prints from the iPhone

as a part of a kickstarter campaign, new york-based impossible has developed a device capable of turning digital iPhone photography
into analog imagery using ‘impossible film’. their newest creation, ‘the instant lab’ features a cradle to hold the smart-phone with
a highly specialized lens designed to focus the image from the screen onto film. a high precision film processing unit (FPU)
processes and develops specific instant film when the phone is placed within its designated base alongside specially calibrated app.
users can seletct and crop images accordingly from their image libraries, where they become developed in a polaroid-styled manner.
