The Impossible Project was founded on the conviction that analog things have value in a digital world. In 2008, the company purchased the world's last remaining Polaroid film factory in The Netherlands with the goal of recasting an outdated production process for a new age, and their newest design, the Impossible Instant Lab, successfully bridges the old and new in a tangible way.
Juxtaposing classic analog developing techniques with contemporary digital technology, the Instant Lab transforms any digital image from your iPhone or iPod Touch into a real analog instant photo right before your eyes. Simply select a picture from your device using the Instant Lab iOS App, place it on the Instant Lab, and within seconds it produces an analog photo that will develop in depth, detail, and color in a matter of minutes.
Charge battery with the included USB. Impossible Instant Lab made in Germany. Film made in the Netherlands. Special color film sold separately (eight exposures per pack). Photos take approximately 30 minutes to develop. Works with iPhone 4-5S and iPod Touch 4-5.
Impossible Instant Lab is featured in the Kickstarter@MoMA Design Store presentation, and was brought to life by 2,509 backers on Kickstarter.
