Prynt Pocket, a pocket-sized photo printer for iPhone, is now available
Prynt, the company that launched a phone case/printer through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter in 2015, has released its next-generation mobile printer, the Prynt Pocket. With Prynt Pocket, users can print a photo directly from their iPhone by inserting the handset into the printer, then snapping a photo. The related Prynt app also offers an augmented reality feature that plays a video within the physical photo print.
Prynt Pocket utilizes Zink inkless photo paper and has a removable paper cartridge that holds up to ten sheets at a time. Once Pocket is attached to an iPhone, users can snap a photo and then make edits using the Prynt app, including adding stickers and text, and adjusting the lighting. The printer takes about half a minute to produce a photo.
Unlike some competing instant cameras and mini printers, the Prynt app also leverages augmented reality to give users something a bit more modern and technical: 10-second looping videos that play when a Prynt photo is viewed using the company's mobile app. The (optional) video is recorded when the photo is taken and is uploaded to the cloud, where it is then utilized whenever someone views the photo with the Prynt AR app feature.
Prynt Pocket is available from Prynt's website now for $149.99. A 40-pack of photo paper retails for $19.99.
Meet the Prynt Pocket -- The Device that Transforms your Phone into the Smallest and Coolest Instant Camera
Now small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, Prynt's second generation device is the easiest way to print and share life's everyday moments while on-the-go
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/17 -- Prynt, the company leading a new era of instant photography, today announced Prynt Pocket, a device that transforms your phone into the smallest and coolest instant camera. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, Prynt Pocket attaches directly to your phone, and lets you capture, print and share life's everyday moments -- from spontaneous to special occasions -- while on-the-go. The Prynt Pocket also has innovative video capabilities for next-gen storytelling, giving you the option to embed augmented reality videos into your photos and bring them to life in a Harry Potter-like way. Check out the video.
The phone in our pocket serves as our camera, photo album, and the way we share our lives digitally. But with the thousands of photos stored on our phones, there's never been an easy way to print those photos, so they become lost in our phones and rarely looked at again. Prynt is changing this and giving everyone -- from teens and millennials to young parents -- the ability to turn their phone into an instant camera. Printing photos from your phone is now just as instant and exciting as posting a photo on Instagram or Snapchat.
"We are thrilled to bring Prynt Pocket to market after the success we have had with the Prynt Case," said Clément Perrot, co-founder and CEO of Prynt. "There is nothing cooler than being able to print a photo straight from your phone, and when you add in the augmented reality video feature, that takes photo sharing to a whole new level. By turning a phone into an instant camera, everyone gets to experience the shared enjoyment of reliving fun and spontaneous moments through a printed photo."
Using Prynt Pocket is easy. Simply attach it to your phone and you're ready to print. Once you've taken a photo, you have the option to record a 10-second video that will be hidden within that photo. Before printing, the Prynt app enables you to edit and enhance your photo with fun, creative filters, text and memes. Then, whoever has a physical copy, can use the Prynt app to scan the photo and watch it come to life. Whether a marriage proposal, surprise announcement or selfie video, Prynt Pocket adds magic to any moment.
The ultra-portable Prynt Pocket, Prynt comes in three colors -- cool grey, graphite and mint -- making it a fashion-forward accessory that fits any lifestyle. It uses inkless paper for vibrant, long-lasting, tear and smudge resistant photos. The paper has adhesive backing so you can peel and stick your photos anywhere -- whether on an inspiration board, scrapbook or your desk at work. Through the Prynt app, users can also share their photos and video creations across all social channels, as well as print their favorite Instagram, Snapchat, etc. pictures directly from their phone.
Prynt Pocket is now available for purchase on www.prynt.co/, Amazon.com and UrbanOutfitters.com for $149. In early June, it will also be available at Best Buy, with additional retailers to be introduced. Prynt Pocket is compatible with the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, and will be available for Android later this year.
