|"Every day, digital photos capture, memorialize and shape our lives - but they are not given the chance to inspire us because they die on cell phones or digital cameras" Lady Gaga said. |
"I created the GL10 because everyone loves to take photos with their mobile phones - and the next evolution is to combine digital images with instant photography, bringing photos to life in vibrant colours that you can share, from the palm of your hand."
The GL10 can print photos wirelessly to mobile devices through Bluetooth, or from a PC and Mac via USB. Photos are printed within a minute and uses ZINK's second-generation thermal technology to deliver "photo-lab quality prints that emerge fully developed and protected by a smudge-proof, water-resistant coating".
ZINK's patented technology uses heat to activate crystal embedded paper. This technology substitutes the cost of ink with the cost of Zink's paper, with the added advantage of size and portability.
The GL10 will be released in July and costs $199.95 from authorised Polaroid resellers. A pack of 30 ZINKÂ® GL10 photo paper will cost $29.95.
