Lifeprint is a small printer that is similar to the Polaroid ZIP printer that I reviewed last year. It uses Bluetooth to pair to your smartphone and the same type of ZINK thermal photo paper like the Polaroid ZIP printer. But that’s where the similarities end because the Lifeprint instant photo printer can print videos too! That’s right, it can print videos that can be viewed and shared. Think about that for a sec… How the heck is that possible? Well, there is some gadget trickery involved. It actually prints Augmented Reality Hyperphotos. So the prints look normal, but when you view them through your smartphone’s camera, they come to life to display up to 15 seconds of video. Cool right?
The Lifeprint printer will only work with the iPhone for now and can be purchased for $129.95 at LifePrintphotos.com and Apple.com. Lifeprint film is $19.95 for a pack of 30 and $49.95 for a pack of 110.
