Snap shot: Instant camera prints online activity

27.01.2013 New York : Keepsake : Interactive Telecommunications Program

New York – Members of the Interactive Telecommunications Program in New York have developed a camera that enables consumers to print instant photographs of their digital experiences.

The Polaroid Cacher, created by Adrià Navarro and DI Shin, comprises a camera and a printer. The camera takes a screen shot of a user’s computer screen via an internet browser extension and sends the image wirelessly to the printer. The printer then produces a small photograph.
