Pocket-sized ZINK Zero-Ink photo printing with the Polaroid ZIP

Polaroid Zip pocket printerOh teenagers these days. They just don’t even understand how good they have it with their smartphones and digital world. Do they even know what it was like waiting for our film to come back all those years ago? I’m guessing probably not.

But, while the teens of today take thousands of pictures, selfies, shots of shoes on sidewalks, and photos of creatively arranged food, they also don’t know what they are missing out on. They are missing out on the joy that comes from having an actual photograph of good times shared with family and friends.

Granted, they might own picture frames, but you certainly won’t find many that have been updated this decade with new pictures. In this an era of instant digital photos hidden away on smartphones, teenagers these days don’t have anything tangible that they can hang up and make them smile every time they see it.

What they need is an introduction to Polaroid. No, not the Polaroid film cameras of my youth, the Polaroid ZIP Instant Photoprinter is the newest technology – a pocket-sized photo printer that makes inkless prints utilizing your smartphone pictures.

That’s a neat invention. I didn’t know they made this kind of thing. Having grown up with the old fashioned Polaroid this is a great improvement for today’s world.

I want one of these so bad! I had a thermal handheld printer (much bigger than this) back in the day, but it was nowhere near this cool, and the images only lasted a little while before the disappeared. This is much cooler!
