The kids today posting their selfies and cat pictures to Instagram have no idea that they owe the square-shaped insta-photos to the good old Polaroid. So give them a little history lesson this holiday season with the Polaroid Socialmatic camera. It prints your photos on the spot like the original model, but also uploads them directly to social media outlets thanks to a WiFi connection that also lets users download apps and use the internet.
Move over Instagram, this new technology is going back to the photo fad that started it all–Polaroid. A French startup company has spent the past year developing the Prynt Case, which can instantly turn a cell phone into a Polaroid instant camera. The case can even print the vintage-looking photos on the spot.
