The Printer That’s Designed for Your Pocket
Polaroid's ZIP Instant Mobile Printer lets you print wirelessly from your phone
Polaroid released its ZIP Instant Mobile Printer this month, allowing users to print wirelessly from the cameras they are using the most: their mobile devices.
Using the Polaroid ZIP app from a mobile device and Bluetooth or NFC technology, users can print a 2×3” full-color photo in under 60 seconds. The photos also come with a sticky back that can be revealed for use as a sticker.
The printer uses Polaroid’s ZINK zero ink technology, first used with their PoGo Instant Printer in 2008. It produces smudge-free and photo-quality prints by embedding dye crystals into the photo paper, eliminating the need for ink cartridges, ribbons or toner.
