maybe you for polaroid camera is not very familiar with, but you must have heard of “polaroid”. Recently, a French start-up Prynt hardware company unveiled their new products – can the phone into a “polaroid” new mobile base. But this is only one step of their planning, the next step will be combined with Prynt development applications, determined to bring mobile phone camera into a new era of experience.

They spent a lot of time to go to shenzhen looking for available spare parts, how to use a simple algorithm was photographed holding a cell phone via bluetooth promptly sent to the external base and then print it out.
the current version of the innovation base needs 50 seconds to send pictures, and every time can only print a photo. But the final version is expected to market the transmission time reduced to 30 seconds, and at the same time can print 10 to 30 of the photo. This requires a better performance of the hardware integration, and there is a direct physical connection between mobile phone and the base rather than relying on the bluetooth function.
another promote Prynt extension of small feature of innovation base is combined with the company development of another camera application. When you took photos with Prynt application, the application will automatically record the video of the environment around, when you take a photo and then transferred to the cloud storage. When you use your phone camera function scan printed photos, while maintaining Prynt camera function open in the background, screen will display a play button, can press after to show you pictures of the scene, the unique taste.
