Socialmatic Camera

Polaroid’s Socialmatic Instant Camera has been rumored for quite some time, but it’s finally hitting stores on January 1, 2015. The 544g Android OS-powered production model looks a little bit different from the concept, but still packs a 4.5-inch color touchscreen, 14-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2-megapixel selfie rear camera, with prints measuring 2 x 3 in (5.1 x 7.6 cm). On the inside, you’ll find GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, photo-geotagging and remote printing. There’s 4GB of built-in storage, but also a microSD expansion slot that’s good for 32GB of additional memory.

Closing the gap between camera and rocket launcher, the Polaroid Socialmatic boasts a full-fledged Android operating system that turns it into a powerful personal computer. It features a desktop-grade Internet browser and email client, as well as builtin GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. These enable photo geo-tagging, remote printing, and a unique QR code feature: It embeds a code that can be scanned by smartphones, smart cameras, and other digital devices, thus providing you the ability to track and follow your photos as they make their cyberspace journey around the world.
