We love the fact that modern smartphones give us the ability and convenience of being able to take great photos wherever we are and share them with the world. And yet, we still long for the nostalgia and tangibility of the old school Polaroid. That’s where the Polaroid Lab comes in. There are plenty of options out there to convert your most prized shots from phone to film, but none of them do it with the immediacy of the the Polaroid Lab. Equal parts scanner and printer, Polaroid Lab takes the photos you add to their proprietary app and projects them onto a piece of instant film that develops as quickly as a vintage Polaroid. As Oskar Smolokowski, CEO of Polaroid B.V., says “The idea behind the Polaroid Lab is that it turns your most precious smartphone photos into tangible Polaroid photographs – bringing them into the world as something you can hold in your hand and store on the fridge door rather than in the cloud.” It’s the perfect modern solution for those of us that want to share more of our memories in the real world. The Polaroid Lab will be available starting this October at a price of around $130.
