Polaroid combines Instagram with instant printing in new camera

Polaroid combines Instagram with instant printing in new camera
Polaroid Socialmatic

One thing that has disappeared with the advent of the smartphone is people sharing photos. I know that you can easily tap a few buttons and share your digital photos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media sites, but I'm talking about sharing photos like back "in the old days."

I'm talking about when people would stop to pull photos out of their wallet or purse to proudly show off their family members. It was always so much fun to see the pride that people took in explaining each picture. And Instagram is aiming to bridge the gap between the digital and the physical realm of photos.

Instagram has teamed up with Polaroid to create a new generation of click and print photos. But instead of the old Polaroids that you waved around to develop, these new photos will be a beautiful hybrid of the new technology of social media and the older technology of physical photos.

Introducing Socialmatic, the camera that can take photos and share them to your social media accounts like Instagram and print two-by-three inch photos with sticky backs that you can attach anywhere.
