Instaprint Creates Inkless, On-Demand Photo Prints From Instagram Snaps

Capitalizing on people's nostalgia for old Polaroid prints, a company called Breakfast will soon beta-test a location-based printer that will create inkless, on-demand photos from the Instagram iPhone app. Instaprint, as it's called, automatically prints photos that are taken with Instagram app and tagged with a specific location or hashtag. Next week, Breakfast will show off two printers to SX...

The Best Designs of CES 2011

It's a strange paradox: at the world's largest consumer electronics show -- the circus extravaganza in which the work of thousands of industrial designers is laid bare before the masses -- most of the stuff we find is total crap. Students and experimental designers don't often find their way to CES, probably due to a lack of startup capital or a conceptual design that's unfeasible on a large scal...

Lady Gaga Unveils Polaroid's Grey Label Line, Including Video-Camera Glasses

Lady Gaga returned to CES this year, reprising her role as top-billed celebrity eye candy and creative director for Polaroid. We waited, and waited -- just as we did last year -- to get a glimpse of the petite diva among a throng of sweaty journos, industry affiliates and even a greasy fan or two. Gaga finally appeared, after Polaroid Chairman Bobby Sager was literally booed off the stage by the ...

Design Concepts: Cutting-Edge Cameras

The Web is teeming with the unrealized ideas of both students and established designers who set out to produce astonishing renderings and prototypes for unusual products. Unfortunately, due to the lack of time, money, or technology, many of those products never move from the planning stages to the mass market. But that doesn't mean we can't salivate over their creations, nevertheless. There...

Polaroid Makes Cynical Reentry to Instant Photo Market

When Polaroid ditched the instant photo business in 2008, fans of the snap-and-shake method of photography were left in a lurch. This left an opening for Impossible Project to step in and offer overpriced cameras and film that banked more on cool design and nostalgia than on actual innovation. Clearly this caught the attention of the marketing team at Polaroid, who thought, "Hey, we can overcharge...

Oh! You Pretty Things: Our Favorite Designs at CES

CES is all about the hottest and latest tech, from 3-D TVs (yawn) to every single kind of e-reader imaginable (double yawn). And while the circuitry of these devices typically blows minds, their exteriors are often an afterthought. It's like having Einstein's brain in the body of Brian Peppers [note to eds.: or replace Peppers with Sam the Chinese Crested Dog] -- genius, but a little tough on the...

Polaroid Hires Her, Monster Endorses Her, But We Just Love Lady Gaga

She could team up with any industry in the world, but songstress and superstar Lady Gaga has a taste for tech. "Pokerface" debuted with her Heartbeats headphones, and a Wii even appeared in "Bad Romance." But yesterday, Polaroid announced that the platinum provocateur will be its new creative director, shifting parts of the brand back to the instant film development that made it f...

Gift Guide: FujiFilm Instax Mini 7

FujiFilm Instax Mini 7 (Style-o-Phile, under $100) Polaroid may come and Polaroid may go (and then come right back again), but there will always be a place in our hearts for instant film. Especially when it's as easy, foolproof, and cheap as Fuji's $85 Instax Mini 7. For the uninitiated in this digital age, the idea is that you snap a shot and a full-color 2 x 3-inch print pops out and is de...

Best of the Week: Spam, Polaroid 'Instant' Film Are Back

Even in our ever-accelerating, technologically turbulent world, we can count on some things to remain the same. Baby boomers, the generation that virtually invented short-lived trends, experienced another one with Facebook. After joining in droves last year, they started dropping from it like flies this spring. At the other end of the generational spectrum, teenagers continue to do really dumb ...

Polaroid 'Instant' Film Could Be Back, Thanks to Retro-Loving Chemists

Call us old-fashioned, but there's nothing quite like pulling the ol' photo album down from the bookcase and flipping through the past few decades with friends and family. Sure, perusing pics on Facebook is a surefire way to blow a few hours, but, for our money, physical copies still reign. (This probably explains why that digital photo frame we got for Christmas is still gathering dust in stor...

CES Day 3 Highlights

There's still plenty of time left at CES, but things are definitely slowing down. You can tell that people are running out of energy and companies are running out of steam. Bloggers are too, but there's a lot left to cover, so let's dive in! Jimmy Fallon and Engadget's Joshua Topolsky Talk Gadgets - Engadget editor-in-chief Joshua Topolsky got a few minutes to chat with soon-to-be late-night sup...

Fuji Eases Polaroid Withdrawl with New Instax Mini

When Polaroid announced that it was ceasing production of its classic instant cameras and film, candid photo fans around the world wept. But don't worry, if you're not comfortable shelling out a small fortune for leftover stock of Polaroid film, you can go grab yourself an Fuji Instax Mini. The Instax Mini prints up credit card-sized instant photos just like those served up by your old school Po...

Polaroid Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, Again

Polaroid may have defeated Kodak in the instant camera business, but it can't beat a sagging economy. Polaroid (or Polaroid Corp to be precise) just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the second time in 7 years. Of course, the new Polaroid Corporation is really just a holding company for the Polaroid name -- a brand that has been thoroughly diluted by its application to sub-standard ...

'Poladroid' Adds Vintage Polaroid Look to Your Photos

Shake it like a... well, you know. Since switching to digital, we've often missed the look and feel of prints from our old Polaroid cameras. Sure, you can boot up Photoshop and employ a set of filters and level adjustments to achieve the Polaroid look with the washed out colors and white borders, or you can check out the new Poladroid software. Once you open the app, drag your photos onto the Pola...

Polaroid Digicam to Feature Built-In Printer in 2009

We had this inkling that it was only a matter of time before a PoGo-infused camera came to market, and at long last, we finally know (well, sort of) how long we're talking. Sometime in 2009, the aforesaid company will be pushing out a digital camera that includes an on board printer based around the Zink technology. The device will be capable of ejecting 4- x 3-inch prints, and curiously enough, i...
