Though the name Polaroid may take you back to fond memories, shaking photos as you wait for the ink to develop, the company has taken the input of an unlikely co-conspirator/creative director, in the form of pop sensation Lady Gaga, to bring its newest line of products into the future, and beyond. Polaroid’s Grey Label, a line of digital, still centers around the company’s time tested promise of delivering photos instantly and easily for all to say. Only in their newest releases, Polaroid has dared to reach new heights in both innovation and imagination.While yes, most cameras on today’s market allow users to see photos as soon as they’re taken, Polaroid still boasts an advantage their camera making counterparts fail to address, instant printing. Here’s a quick look at the Grey Line products, all to be made available for purchase within the year:
- GL10 The GL10 serves as a mobile printer, connecting your mobile phone or digital camera so that pictures can be printed then and there, in under 60 seconds.
- GL20 Let your glasses tell the world quite literally what you’ve seen. This fashionable pair of frames features a built in camera and LCD display screens to broadcast your instant memories to the friends and passersby.
- GL30 For those who prefer the traditional Polaroid spirit of a camera and printer all within the same device, the GL20 blends the two functions seamlessly. The GL30 also allows you to add customizations to your photo before the printing process is underway, with a selection of finishing options to shape your photo to a final physical product of your desire.
All three camera’s boast the sleek design and unique styling in the image of Gaga’s personal flair for the futuristic, but don’t worry, consisting of basic black and metallic elements, the look isn’t so far-fetched as to turn off the more casual consumer (well, except the glasses).
