We all love the photo app, Instagram—but there has been many times where we wished we could snap a photo, select a filter and print it out to physically share—like a Polaroid camera! Well, a new company called Socialmatic is trying to make your wish come true.
Socialmatic, who has teamed up with Polaroid, is taking Instagram out of the digital realm and giving you actual photographs in the form of a camera that allows users to point, snap and apply vintage and retro filters.
This new camera isn’t taking us back in time. Users can post captions on their photos before printing them. The device will also have a built-in Zink printer, Wi-Fi and Blutetooth chips, a 4.3-inch touchscreen and the ability to sync photos to their Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Socialmatic’s deal with Polaroid will also include accessories like camera bags, lenses and filters.
We must note that this camera is not affiliated with Instagram. Although the slim, square camera resembles the app icon, product and detail details are still being finalized and the look can change.
The Socialmatic camera is expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2014.
