Remote Instagram Printer Instaprint Going from Prototype to Product

One year ago we featured a novel new device called Instaprint, a location-based photo booth that lets people create instant prints of Instagram photos by simply tagging them with a specific tag. It constantly scans Instagram for its tag, and when a photo is found the image is immediately printed out as a Zink print. Now Breakfast, the company behind the prototype, is trying to turn it into an actual product. They’re trying to raise half a million bucks through Kickstarter and a $400 contribution effectively preorder one.

Here’s the promo video:

To demonstrate the device in action, they’ve even set up a live webcam pointed at two Instaprint printers that use the tag “#instaprint”. Simply add that tag to a photo, and you’ll see it pop out of the printer!

    Would be better if it was logged in to your Instagram profile and printed whatever you snapped

    That’s, like, totally super cool :D I’m gonna take so many meaningful Instagram photos of myself being all poetic and stuff.

    Yeah, I want one of those. I love the idea of having a machine at my business that consumes expensive ink and paper on the whim of someone anywhere in the world who adds my tag ‘for a laugh’.

    Not sold.

    That name seems to already be taken, by a different company.

    I believe you would set your own machine up I only print those photos tagged with a tag of your choosing…
