If you’re anything like me ( Lets not forget Facebook of course too) and you love Instagram then you’re going to be pumped about this one. The people over at Breakfast – a physical-digital interactive agency (As they refer to themselves) are working on a new Instagram printing device that they hope to bring to market by late summer. It looks pretty rad!
What is the device? It is a small box that they call Instaprint that prints out Instagram photos at events while they are posted. It has embedded technology that can find photos using the event’s hashtag, includes likes and comments when it prints, and uploads the collection to a website for browsing later.
I am sure it’s in the works, but it would be cool if the website allowed you search for photos of you, purchase, and have them sent to you in the mail – everyone loves physical photos of themselves.
Is this something you would like to have at your next event? I do. Then lets help them out. Breakfast is raising funds and gauging interest — on Kickstarter. They hope that, with everyone’s help they can get the price down to $399 – something that more people could afford.
If the funding goes through and they start shipping late summer, each device will be powered by a mini Linux computer, easy to set up through wireless internet and be inkless – the ink comes from the actual paper.
What do you think of this new printer? Do you want one?
