Polaroid's new Snap camera uses ink-less photo printing tech

Camera relies on special crystals embedded in photo paper

Polaroid is still alive, amazingly, and just announced its Polaroid Snap, a camera for automatic prints that doesn't rely on ink.

Instead, this little digital camera relies on the Zero Ink printing technology to produce full colour, 2x3-inch prints. The secret is the Zink paper used, which has embedded cyan, yellow and magenta dye crystal that the inbuilt printer activates to produce colour photos.

With a 10MP sensor, the camera provides a microSD card slot that supports capacities up to 32GB. It can also take pictures in black and white as well as vintage Polaroid mode, with a fun photo booth mode that captures six pictures in ten seconds, as well as the option to leave out the Polaroid classic border.

The camera will be out in Q4 2015 in black, white, read and blue for US$99.
