Video of the Day: Polaroid Cacher, Instant Pictures of Digital Life

Much of our day is spent on the computer — IM'ing friends, playing games, working, posting photos on social media — and Polaroid Cacher wants to immortalize the best of those fleeting moments.

The concept camera is a screenshot come to life, bringing the instantaneous photo printing of Polaroid and the digital experience together.

In the video, we see a Google Chrome browser plug-in that works as a screenshot would. A viewfinder appears and the user can toggle the lens around and adjust the zoom. After taking the snapshot, Polaroid Cacher wirelessly prints the photo, using a vintage Polaroid Land Camera and a custom laser-cut enclosure.

Designer Adrian Navarro is rethinking cameras and made a presentation on his background research for the Polaroid Cacher project. He discusses repurposing vintage cameras in ways that are efficient, commercial, and fit in with today's visual culture.
