Electronic Instant Camera Prints Images Onto Receipt Paper [Video]

The ‘Electronic Instant Camera’ is a combination of an analog b/w videocamera and a thermal receipt printer. It doesn’t store the pictures on film or digital but instead prints directly onto the paper to create a unique image. The process is very slow and people have to keep still for around three minutes for a full portrait photograph to be taken and printed. You can see the Electronic Instant Camera in action in the video below:
