Impossible, is a company with a Kickstarter dream. The company is hoping to bring to market The Impossible Instant Lab, a gadget that turns iPhone Photos into “real”, “instant” Polaroid prints. I know, I know…didn’t Polaroid go out of favor? Didn’t the company stop making Polaroids? Well, yes and that’s the problem. I love Polaroids. I dream of Polaroids. I love Polaroids more than I love Instagram (sorry to my young relatives who have made Instagram a way of life).
The Impossible Instant Lab is a nifty gadget. A gadget none of us need, but a gadget that taps into nostalgia for those like me. The company has pledges of $250,000 of a $309,596 goal (with 25-days to go). And if the company doesn’t meet their Kickstarter goal, I do hope that somewhere down the line they figure out how to bring this product to market.
Just think of how your inspiration board will look with all of the thousands of digital prints printed in Polaroid form.
