The legacy of Polaroid isn't dead yet. An Austrian artist, businessman and Polaroid obsessive name Florian Kaps has swooped in to save the day.

But Kaps has devised a plan to re-open the currently dormant Polaroid factory in Amsterdam and begin manufacturing film again. Kaps is also the founder of Polanoid.net, (the biggest Polaroid gallery on the web) and Polanoir, the first ever Polaroid-only art gallery in Vienna.
