The Polaroid Lab Transfers Your Digital Photos Onto Analog Instant Film

Polaroid Originals has released its latest product, and it’s an instant printer… with a twist. Rather than just printing digital files, this so-called “miniature table top darkroom” actually turns digital files into analog prints by projecting your phone screen onto a piece of instant film.

The Polaroid Lab isn’t a new idea. The product was first crowdfunded and released years ago when Polaroid Originals was known as The Impossible Project.

The new Polaroid Lab works the same was as the old Impossible Instant Lab: it projects a photo from your smartphone’s screen onto a piece of analog instant film (in this case, any Polaroid i-Type film), using three lenses and multiple mirrors to transfer the image as accurately as possible. Just download the Polaroid Originals app, pull up a photo, put your phone face-down on top of the Polaroid Lab, and press the big red button.

As Polaroid Originals writes on the product’s website: “Not a printer, not a scanner, just an instant formula for timeless images.” Here’s a quick ad for the quirky not-printer/not-scanner:
