the prynt pocket transforms your iphone into a mini polaroid camera

prynt, the san-francisco based company behind the the original phone case that prints out your iphone camera roll, have unveiled the cute and kitch print pocket. small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the tiny add on attaches directly to your phone to let you capture, print, and share moments just like having a polaroid. yet rather than simply transforming the digital into the physical and stopping there, the prynt pocket also uses gives you the option to embed augmented reality videos in your printed photos, and use the app to bring them back to life in a moving, harry potter-esque way.

the prynt pocket forms the solution to a widespread problem in that now phone cameras have become so good, we tend to take all our snaps on them, storing our memories in their millions on one tiny device. there’s never been an easy way to print these photos, so they become lost in our phones and rarely looked at again, dissapearing into an abyss should our mobile be lost or stolen. prynt is trying to change this by turning our phone into an instant camera, that prints out memories as you go.



clément perrot, CEO and co-founder of print explains that ‘we are thrilled to bring Prynt Pocket to market. there is nothing cooler than being able to print a photo straight from your phone. by turning a phone into an instant camera, everyone gets to experience the shared enjoyment of reliving fun and spontaneous moments through a printed photo.’ the camera prints onto inkless paper for smudge-resistant photos, with an adhesive backing so they can be used as stickers.



to use print pocket, all you need do is attach it onto your phone via the lightening dock, and you’re ready to roll. photos can even be edited with creative filters, text, and memes before being printed. once you’ve taken a photo, you have the option to record a 10 second ‘magic’ video that will be hidden within the photo. just as when you hold down on an iphone ‘live photo’ to transform it into a video, scanning the printed copy with the prynt app will bring it back to life.
