Instagram and Polaroid look to be joining forces to release the SocialMatic Camera. Originally a concept design from ADR Studio, it is a physical, square camera that prints out physical polaroids like the good ol’ days. Hipsters rejoice! Polaroid may have not had much success with their expensive Lady Gaga glasses, but I have a good feeling about this new relationship. Instagram is an instant hit, causing the social media kings over at Facebook to scoop up the property. With a quarter one targeted date, it won’t be long becore physical pictures make their triumphant return to our culture.
With no official specs released as of yet, there is some spies on the case that are reporting a 16GB storage (no cloud?) optical zoom, 4:3 zoom, WiFi, Bluetooh, LED Flash, with a $99 targeted retail price. Likely speculation, but would you dish out $100 greens to start making a collage of your photos?
