Last year when Polaroid announced it would be closing instant-film factories, millions of shutterbugs around the world mourned over the iconic, white-framed snapshots— but not before hitting up every Walgreens in town to stock up on 600 film. Then, Poladroid, a software application that transforms your digi pics into mimics of the beloved classic, gave us hope that our memories could, sort of, live in white borders again. Now, there's news that an Austrian businessman may resurrect the defunct factories, but I'll believe it when I see it. Until then, I'll be heartened by the Polaroid Mirror ($23), a standing mirror with a white vinyl frame, a tribute to the film that brought years of instant gratification to many.
