Instagram fans would definitely want the Instagram Socialmatic Camera to be a reality. Its function is quite simple, take square photos, upload it to your Instagram account, and even print it ala Polaroid but on a sticky paper.
This digital camera is beautifully modeled after the Instagram icon. What’s inside is WiFi to connect to the internet, Bluetooth to possibly transfer files to other devices, 16GB of storage, a 4:3 touchscreen, 2 different lenses, LED flash, a QR code reader, and it can also be used as a webcam. At least, that’s how ADR studios who created this concept camera wants it to be like.
After taking your Instagram photo and uploading it to your account, you can also print it directly from the camera. It will use a sticky sheet (like Post-its) as paper so you can stick your picture anywhere you wish to. The printout will also have a QR code and your Instagram username for easy following.
Now if only they being making this a reality for the millions of Instagram lovers in the world. It feels weird to hold when taking photos but what the heck, take my money!
UPDATE: The Instagram Socialmatic Camera can now be funded in Indiegogo, a crowdfunding site. They’re estimating a retail price of under $350. Ouch. In that case, I’ll hold on to my money for now.
