This looks pretty cool and portable - do really wonder what the photo paper is going to cost It also has 2 free companion apps for iOS & Android.

@bramk @joshdance It seems like the trend now is paper that doesn't require ink or the ink is embedded, cause the cost of making something that can be dissembled is too high/risky. I think that's the method Prynt used http://www.producthunt.com/posts... If only they'd had it in plus sizes for my "big boned" iPhone…

My issue with this is mostly on principal. Polaroid stopped making its beloved photo products nearly a decade ago now, shifting to making forgettable consumer electronics. To me this is just a company desperately trying to save itself by spending what's left of it's nostalgia capital on a product that *might* have an appeal to its former fans -- though honestly I think most of them will see this for what it is. Now I'll get off my soapbox. ;)
