This particularly cool gadget is sure to win you over, especially if you’re a fan of Harry Potter (as we’ll soon see). Okay, so this is an iPhone specific gadget that supports iPhone 5 onward, so apologies to Android users. That being said, the Prynt Pocket will turn your iPhone into an instant camera reminiscent of those Polaroids we all know and love. Simply attach it to your phone, download the app and get snapping!
You also have a couple of options when it comes to what to print. First, you can print from your camera roll, second, you can download the Prynt app and choose whatever photo you want from your social media channels, and third, snap pictures and print in real-time — all in 30 seconds. For that special touch, you have the option of customizing images with filters, frames, lighting, etc. before printing.
Now we get to the Harry Potter reference. Remember how ‘magical’ newspapers, pictures, etc. had moving images? Well, with the Prynt you can too! It works like this: download the Prynt app and use its AR (augmented reality) function to attach a video to your Prynt and watch it come to life before your very own eyes. Cool, I know. As for printing, the prints use no ink; photos print onto ZINK (zero ink) sticker paper, meaning that you can also peel off the adhesive backing to turn any picture into a sticker.
Sure, you can always listen to music on your phone and stick to static selfies, but why should you? Treat yourself! Focus on you and get yourself one of the gadgets above as a nice Summer gift.
