When you think of a traditional portable photo printer, you wouldn’t expect it to do more than just print photos. But the geniuses over at Lifeprint think you should raise your standards. Which is why the company has designed a portable photo printer that turns your pictures into an interactive trip down memory lane.
Instead of only printing single frames, Lifeprint embeds a video into your picture. So when you scan the print using the app, it’ll play the footage in place of your still shot. Sounds like something we brought back from our vacation to the future, doesn’t it? Well, I promise you it’s 100% real and available for your enjoyment.
How does it work?
Using a Bluetooth connection, Zero Ink (ZINK) photo paper, and the Lifeprint app, you’re able to pair the printer with any smartphone or tablet in a few seconds. Just make sure you remember to allow the app to access your photos – this way it can build a media collection from your camera library, as well as any social media archives like Instagram and Snapchat.
Once all the technical stuff is taken care of, all you have to do is pick the photo you want to print and the video you’d like to embed before sending it off to the printer. Then, in order to see your embedded video, just open up the media viewer in the Lifeprint app, hold your photo in range and watch it come alive!
Lifeprint even makes it easy to share these screen recordings with your friends in the Lifeprint app, on Instagram or Facebook straight from the app. Or you can choose to save the recording as a video and share it manually.
Plus, each pic is on self-adhesive photo paper, so showing them off is as easy as 1-2-3. And trust us, with high-quality prints like these you’ll be more than eager to display them – animation aside.
Where can I find Lifeprint?
Lifeprint is available through Amazon in two sizes: 2×3 and 3×4.5 (the one featured in this post). The printers usually retail for $129.99-$145.99, but for a limited time, shoppers can score the 2×3 portable photo printer for just $84.98. Film refill packs are also available through Amazon with prices starting at $17-$27 for 30-50 sheets.
So go on and stock up before your next trip so you can send your loved ones postcards so real they feel like they traveled with you!
