Polaroid Introduces a New Camera That Takes Instant Inkless Pictures
Polaroid, the originator of instant photography, is back with a new, sleek-looking camera that can print out photos on the spot—and doesn't need any ink to do it.
Called the Polaroid Plus, the new camera will use Zero Ink Technology developed by the tech company ZINK. The special paper has cyan, magenta, and yellow ink dye crystals embedded inside it, and the camera's job is to activate the colored dye in the appropriate places. Afterward, the camera can spit out a 2- by 3-inch picture to show your friends. Since it's a digital camera, the Polaroid Plus can also save the picture on a memory card of up to 32GB. That way you can download the pictures later if you want to have them printed out a little bigger.
Pictures taken with this handy new camera can be color, black and white, or vintage. There's a self-timer and an option to take multiple pictures at once.
The cameras will be available in four colors: blue, red, black, and white, all with the signature rainbow stripe. They will cost $99 with ZINK paper costing about $25 for a five pack.
