Polaroid's Snap+ is an instant camera and a printer

Polaroid licensee C&A Marketing released the Snap instant camera last September, which is a basic 10-megapixel digital camera that prints every shot you take just like the original Polaroid cameras. The new Snap+ does that, too, but will also allow you to print shots taken with your phone or tablet.

Like the company's Polaroid Zip printer, the Snap+, announced at CES in Las Vegas, has Bluetooth so you can wirelessly connect an iOS or Android device to it and send photos from them for small, 2x3-inch borderless prints. The Snap+ uses Zink zero-ink paper embedded with cyan, yellow and magenta dye crystals. The crystals start off colorless, but as the print is being made, heat activates the crystals, changing them into the appropriate colors.

The Snap+ is also a 13-megapixel digital camera that will also record full HD video to a microSD card. You can then print those photos. There's also 3.5-inch touchscreen to frame your shots first and hopefully edit or at least selectively print pictures -- something you can't do with the Snap, since it has no screen at all.

Before you get too excited, though, C&A says the camera isn't expected to go on sale until Q4 2016 and, of course, there's no price set for it just yet.
