during a brainstorming session between designer pierpaolo lazzarini and musician-composer giampaolo scapigliati, the two took notice of their old fax machine placed atop their studio desk. in that moment, they realized something: ‘everyone still has some boxes containing letters, postcards, and pictures, stuff of our grandparents and parents, stuff that we love to keep for collection, for remember and don’t forget. well, now we have a lot of photos, shots of the foods we eat, pictures of the pets we love, and images of the things we are used to do and things we are not! but at the end of this incredible display’s scrolling, what do we have in our hands ? and what we will be left after us?’ the questioned. ‘since someone invented the photography, what he would have thought of for the way to store our pictures nowadays?’ the duo has responded to these questions with a product called ‘printeroid‘.

paying homage to the polaroid and its revolutionary technology, the project is a portable fax and printer that can be connected to any apple device. it will allow users to physically create long text messages, pictures, and any other documents they may want to send or receive from their iPhone screens in real time. paired with an app called ‘PMS’ (printeroid messaging service), the product will be able to queue 10 meters of paper. the experience is also enhanced with other benefits, such as the ability to view panoramic photos, tickets for transportation, business cards and stickers.
