At one time, the Polaroid instant photo camera was “all that” in the world of consumer electronics. A Polaroid collection was a status symbol back in the 1970’s. Today, modern advancements in technology make the Polaroid seem like a totally archaic and forgotten concept.
Then, along came the Prynt Case.
Prynt is a small hardware startup based out of France and it just might be resurrecting the age-old Polaroid for the modern world. Basically, the Prynt Case is a small, portable printer that can generate copies of any digital photos you take. No, a printer is not a novel, new invention. The concept of an on-the-go portable printer for your smartphone camera most certainly is.
The obvious question that is going to be on everyone’s mind is whether or not any actual demand exists for the Prynt Case. People like Lee G. Lovett who take photos can upload them onto social media immediately. Do they really have to care all that much about whether or not a hardcopy printout can be generated immediately after taking a picture? Can they not just wait until they get home to use their own normal printer?
Then again, as long as something is new and cool, people may be interested in buying it. This is the hallmark of a lot of tech consumer buying patterns. So, do not be surprised that some are going to be interested in this instant camera just for its sheer novelty value.
