Mmmm. Instagram... (checks it out as it catwalks in front of me) My, how you've grown.
Went from a simple iPhone app that subscribers can use to enhance their pictures with a small load of filters to choose from, where afterwards said person can upload that picture onto the Instagram Homepage, to being THEE app that every person with an iPhone should have, to being bought by Facebook for $1 Billion dollars, to broadening your users to not only iPhone, but also Android phones as well, so now everyone can get in on the fun...
Instagram, my my my. I gotta, say, you've outdone yourself pretty well.
So well, that they're thinking of making lives a whole lot more awesomer by creating an Instagram camera.
Say what now? No, I'm not shitting you.
The Instagram Socialmatic Camera is the latest camera invention, when, just like Instagram, you take a picture, add the filter (if you want), and post it up. Except, you now have the option to print it out of the camera like a polaroid. Insaaaane. Is your mind blown yet? No? Well, here's more.
With the internal printer, it prints onto Instagram Paper Sheets (which have glue strips so they can act like a Post-It), and with every picture that's printed, it prints your username on the front side of the picture, also including a QR code, so if someone on Instagram wants to follow it, they simply punch in the code and voila.
It also has a little space where you can write a caption, just like any ol' Polaroid.
Here are some of its features:
- 16 GB mass storage
- Wifi and Bluetooth
- 4:3 touchscreen
- 2 main lens, first for main capture, second for 3D filters, webcam applications and QR Code capturing
- Optical zoom
- Led Flash
- Internal printer to make your Instagram photos real
- Paper cartridge with Instagram Paper Sheets
- Dedicated 4 colors ink tanks
- InstaOs 1.0, which put together Facebook and Instagram App feature
It's just a concept, I believe. So who knows if it's the official product or if this product is even going to HAPPEN. But, for the sake of the existence... Are you interested?
I gotta admit, I am.
