Zink_camera_printerThe original Polaroids really gave you that instant-gratification feeling for you pics. OK, maybe not instant since you had to wait a few minutes for your pic to magically appear, but that gave us something to do: wave the print around in the air to speed up the process. I remember watching folks do that dance…

ZINK promises to bring that feeling back in a digital way before the end of the year. Their 7-megapixel camera with LCD screen and SD slot also houses a photo paper mechanism so you can distribute prints right away, but only up to 2-inches by 3-inches. The company takes a "zero-ink" approach as the colored dye crystals are embedded right in the paper. I claim no responsibility if you see people waving this camera around to get faster prints…
