$99 phone case transforms mobile into instant printer

LONDON: Now you can turn your mobile into an instant printer with $99 device case.

The case turns digital images into physical photos at the touch of a button, without the need for a data connection. And the French firm is working on an augmented reality feature that will also play videos around printed shots.

Prynt has been designed by a French startup with the same name, led by Clement Perrot. Perrot’s prototype version currently holds just one piece of paper and takes 50 seconds to print a photo.

The photos are sent to the case using Bluetooth, which then prints them in a similar way to how traditional Polaroid cameras work, by mixing a reagent material with chemicals in the layers to form the final image. Prynt case is set to launch on Kickstarter early next year, and will cost $99 (£63).

The firm has said this final version will print images in around 30 seconds, and will be able to hold up to 30 sheets of paper. It will initially support 4-inch screens, such as those seen on the iPhone 5S and 5C, but larger models will be released later.
