Of course, technology continues to advance and to bring the concept of the instant camera into 2017 a developer from India has created a camera that ‘prints’ GIFs onto photo-shaped cartridges.
Abhishek Singh, 28, is notorious for his incredible technical skills and he really has raised the bar with this ‘InstaGif NextStep’ camera. Inspired by the Polaroid OneStep, Abhishek built his model over several weeks, working on hardware, software, 3D modelling, 3D printing, circuit design, mechanical/electrical engineering, design and fabrication. Here is the incredible invention in action:
That is just so cool. As he said in the video, he’s even published all of the design files and codes (on this link) so if you’re up to the challenge, you can have a go at making a Polaroid GIF camera yourself. Happy snapping.
While we’re on the topic of instant cameras, did you know that there’s a new horror movie on its way called ‘Polaroid’? You can check out the trailer HERE.
