Polaroid PoGo printer-cam: an instant success?
What’s that? The Kevin Keegan perm, unfeasibly tight, small shorts and Polaroid cameras are back in fashion? Well, er, no. Actually maybe that last one, because Polaroid has only gone and announced the arrival of the PoGo Instant Digital Camera – a digital camera with built-in printer.
So what’s the deal? Well, the PoGo is actually an amalgamation of its Zink instant printer and a digital camera. Just take a snap of your four girlfriends stuffing their faces (as can be seen in the above image) – you can frame it up easily on the three-inch screen – then print away. Polaroid says that it’ll deliver a 2×3 inch print in under 60 seconds, and because it uses Zink technology and Zink paper there’s no having to wait for ink to dry.
The PoGo is going on sale in America in March, with a European release to follow shortly. This could be the biggest comeback since that amazing new band, Take That. Okay, bad example, but we are quite excited about this. Now, where did we put those flares?
