Everything old is indeed new again, and the Prynt case for your smartphone in a perfect example.


This device allows you to basically turn your phone into a Polaroid instant camera.


If you grew up in the 70s or 80s, you surely remember that all the cool kids had those magic Polaroid cameras that instantly printed off photos.


Prynt not only does photos, but you can grab frames of videos as well. The Prynt app allows you to add filters and effects to your photos before printing.

The case is available for iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6 and 6s and for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and 5 models.

The print quality is not fantastic. You’ll see much sharper images looking at your phone screen or having the photos printed off at a place that specializes in prints. But, it is a fun item to have around for parties, and most of us are pretty bad about getting our digital images printed.

Like the original instant cameras, the paper cartridges are small. You can only put in 10 sheets of paper at a time. The camera comes with a 10-pack of Prynt ZINK Paper.  You can order an additional 50 sheets for $25. Like old-school instant cameras, no ink cartridge is required. The ink is embedded in the paper and heat from the Prynt case brings out the images.

The case itself is $149.99. That price, of course, does not include your smartphone. You can find out more at the Prynt website.
