This is the Impossible Instant Lab, an iPhone photo printer created by the company Impossible.
Why We Love It: This crazy device actually turns your phone photos into Instagram photos IRL (in real life).
Just hook the printer up to your iPhone and select an image. The device will expose the image using light from the display. When you’re ready to print, close the exposure and hit a button—and your photo will appear on Polaroid-style film. It’s really that simple.
Even better, the collapsible design makes it portable, and it has a built-in battery that can handle processing 150 pics all on one charge.
The printer is compatible with film for Polaroid 600 and SX 70 cameras, as well as the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5.
Impossible was founded by a group of former Polaroid employees, so we know they’re passionate—and serious—about photography.
Cost: Prices vary from $149 for the Basic Silver Edition to $2,000 for the Gold Edition, which includes personal engraving and 10 film packs.
