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!
