The Instagram Socialmatic Project is the contextualization a real-life camera that will mimic the popular app – Instagram.  Socialmatic’s Instagram photo camera features dual lens – one of main capture and one for filters and apps, wifi and Bluetooth capability, optical zoom, led flash, and a 4:3 touchscreen. There is an internal printer integrated in the camera with 4 color ink cartridges that will allow users to print photos instantly, similar to a polaroid camera. The 16 GB Instagram camera will be running on its own software – the InstaOs 1.0, which is an integration of Facebook and Instagram App features.

Users are able to share photos directly on Facebook or print them on Instagram Paper Sheets that is provided with the camera.  And finally, to top off all these innovative features, every Instagram printed photo includes a custom QR code that links back to the user’s  Instagram profile.
