Polaroid’s Socialmatic Will Be Here This Fall
If you haven’t heard about the Socialmatic already, let’s get you up to speed. A while back there was this crazy idea to make an actual Instagram camera. Something that would not only share your images on the popular service but, allow you to print that same image with the device (like a Polaroid camera). Originally it was just a what-if concept from ADR Studios. Then it got such an incredible following that Polaroid decided to run with it and started talking with Instagram about making this idea happen…and it IS happening.
Up until now we’ve only had a cursory idea of what the camera would be. Thanks to the reveal at CES 2014, and the new Socialmatic website, we actually have a few solid specs.
The Socialmatic will be Android driven and allow you to post your images to more services than just Instagram. It will house a 14mp sensor in the front, and a 2mp selfie sensor on the back to go with it’s 4.5″ touchscreen LCD. As for storage, there will be 4gb internal but that will be expandable via microSD. Lastly, we know that it will house Polaroid’s ZINK (zero ink) printing technology, allowing it to make 2×3″ prints on the fly.
The video above shows the 360 view of the camera, but if you would like more information head over to the Socialmatic website.
