The Polaroid Snap combines the old with the new by allowing you to take digital pictures that you can instantly print out from the camera itself. It fits in your pocket, comes in a variety of colors, and can be purchased now for just $99.

The Polaroid Snap uses Zero Ink printing technology to “print” the pictures. The magic is in the paper itself, with is embedded with dye crystals that form different colors when heat-activated. It’s a pretty cool technology that allows for pictures that won’t smudge.

I’m sure there are people who would dismiss the Polaroid Snap as hipster hogwash, but I’m all for it. I think there’s something inherently more meaningful in a tangible picture and I think there’s great value in being able to take a photograph and give it away on the spot. I’m aware that you can take a trip down memory lane by going through a hard drive full of old photos, I’ve done it myself, but I also like the idea of opening up a book and finding an old photo that you used as a bookmark years ago.

Excuse me, there’s something in my eye.
