The Impossible Project (previously credited as changing the plight of Polaroid) has announced their latest venture: Instant Lab.
Designed to seamlessly connect analog and digital worlds, Instant Lab transforms your digital images into the real deal, with the convenience and immediacy of a Polaroid camera. The Lab features an iPhone cradle and a specialized lens that focuses the phone’s Retina display. The base then exposes the film and, just like a Polaroid camera, produces the photo.
The Impossible crew set out to make this dream a reality by starting a Kickstarter campaign to raise $250,000. During their month-long quest for cash, they actually raised more than twice their goal. Thanks to a group of loyal fans and generous donors, everyone will get to benefit from Instant Lab when it hits the market in early 2013.
