Polaroid looks like they might have some competition on their hands when it comes to extremely small and portable printers that work best with smartphones. Lifeprint has come up with an all-new 3” x 4.5” Wi-Fi and Bluetooth printer which does both photos and videos, where it is capable of creating and printing out Augmented Reality Hyperphotos from your camera roll, Facebook, Instagram and Saved Snaps, among others, in order to make them come to life as though it is magic. This new printer is available exclusively on Apple.com as well as Apple stores worldwide.
Perfectly timed to launch before the holidays where people love to create and share special memories, this new Lifeprint printer will come with a free application that makes it extremely easy to edit, print, and share photos and videos with family, friends, and basically anyone else, regardless of where they are. Augmented Reality will enable your videos to come to life right there and then, while the Wi-Fi capability lets you print from anywhere in the world with larger prints being recommended for a better quality and experience. Who would have thought that videos could be printed out?
As part of the marketing plan to show just how Lifeprint is going to change the way we share our everyday memories, even the packaging itself will come to life with Augmented Reality technology. In other words, you will be able to watch a video about the product right on the box. With Lifeprint, sharing physical photographs with someone else across the globe is similar to sending a text — as long as they give you their permission, of course. The Lifeprint app paves the way for users to customize prints using filters, memes, stickers, and more. All photos and stickers will be printed on sticky-backed ZINK Paper.
This 3” × 4.5” Lifeprint printer will retail for $149.99 a pop, while compatible Lifeprint film will arrive in packs of 20 and 40 that will go for $29.99 and $49.99, respectively.
