Polaroid is no longer an anachronism more suited to half a century ago. Now you can turn your phone or tablet into an instant camera with the new Polaroid ‘Zip’ Instant Mobile Printer. Simply connect the printer to your phone via Bluetooth and print images in under a minute. The mobile printer is about the size of a smartphone and weighs less than 0.41 lbs, making it compact and easy to pack and carry around. You can print any photo from your phone onto the 2″ x 3″ print format and you can peel the back of the print to use the image as a sticker. The printer app also allows you to edit, decorate and add text to photos before printing them. The Polaroid Zip can print up to 25 images on one charge and it uses special ZINK paper containing dye crystals which activate upon printing. This means no ink and no toner so your photos won’t smudge and you won’t ever need to load ink into the device.
