Bringing the old Polaroid snapshot back to life
The company is reportedly working on a digital frame that resembles the old instant photo.
If there's one gadget that's been egregiously over-produced, it's the. We've never understood the need for so many , , and , except for the networked (though we're not so sure about the whole ).
So if companies insist on making these already-overdone products, we appreciate some originality--as in the idea for a retro-styled Polaroid snapshot lookalike conceived by photographer Dave Friedman. The people at Polaroid apparently agree, according to Stuff, because they're working to make the concept a reality.
As originally envisioned, the wireless frame would present photos from a memory card as a slideshow or as images slowly being developed, mimicking the process of the old-school instant camera. It even includes the familiar white space under the image where a dry marker can be used to write in captions. Brilliant.
