A Photo Booth that Prints Instagrams

Instagram is a quick easy way to add flair to smartphone photos. But for the most part, they’re trapped in the digital world.

That’s where Instaprint comes into play. About a year ago, a prototype emerged that would create Polaroid-like prints from small photo booths connected to the popular photo app. Now, Instaprint is back with a full-scale product. After redesigning more than 100 parts, Breakfast, the Brooklyn-based team behind Instaprint, is looking to raise $500,000 on Kickstarter, with $260,000 of that going toward existing hardware and future production, according to Engadget.

The new design includes easy wireless connectivity, power cables that can daisy chain to hook up multiple booths and inkless printing, a technology that pulls an image’s color from the paper. Instaprint.me also got revamped so it can feature a photo gallery of people’s prints. If Instaprint achieves its funding goal, the units will begin shipping in late summer.

As of this posting, 269 backers have pledged almost $72,000. Fifty-three more days to go to reach the half-mil mark.
