Transform your digital photos into real-life Polaroid pictures - in an instant.
Pluck your memories from the cloud and bring them into the real world with the Polaroid Lab. A 3-lens system that acts like a desktop darkroom to turn your digital photos into instant Polaroid pictures. No printing, no scanning, just 100% real film chemistry. Plus create and communicate in more ways than one with collage and augmented reality functions. Make for you, or make for someone else. But never lose a moment again.
This simple-but-clever device enables you to print any photo or image from your mobile phone onto Polaroid 600 or i-Type instant film. The Lab itself incorporates an AR-coated three-element acrylic lens, along an auto-adjusting shutter system, to essentially take a photo of your smartphone's screen, which is recorded onto instant film for instant printing. The Lab has a built-in lithium-ion battery and charges via USB port.
Working in conjunction with the Polaroid Lab is the dedicated Polaroid Originals app, which will format your mobile photos for printing on the lab as well as enable some more creative options for your prints. A Collage mode lets you split up your digital file in up to nine different frames, which can then be seamlessly printed onto multiple sheets of film for a unique look. Additionally, reaping the benefits of the digital capture, an Augmented Reality tool lets you assign video playback to recognized still images for dynamic multimedia playback. Compiled through the app, this tool layers still images with motion, which can be seen when viewing a finished print using the camera of select smartphones.
