A new French company has been working on turning your smartphone into a miniature Polaroid camera from start of the current year. They have spent much time in creating a simple design that sends a photo to the case over Bluetooth and then prints it by heating paper filled with ink.
The current created version of the case takes almost 50 seconds to print the photo on the paper and currently it hold only one paper at a time. In future for consumer version, they are expecting to provide 10 to 30 sheets holding capacity within the case and also at the same time the printing time will might be shortened to 30 seconds. Any smart phone is directly connected to the case physically, which is a really nice option.
Prynt CEO Clement Perrot says that the case will only cost $99 when first made available via a Kickstarter early next year and will be able to support flagship phones with ~4.x-inch screens. They're currently working on a mount that will also account for phablets like the Galaxy Note or iPhone 6 Plus.
Augmented reality feature built within the camera app will might help Prynt to gain traction. When you take a photo with Prynt's app, it actually records a video of the moments around when you clicked the button and sends it to the cloud. When you hold up the physical photo to your phone's camera with the app open, it is overlaid with a Play button that shows that video in place of the picture itself.
