Polaroid Pogo – inkless mobile printing

June 8, 2008

I’ve been waiting for the first commercial ZINK inkless printing product to appear and it looks like the Polaroid PoGo is the first. This system will give mobile users the ability to print their pictures as soon as they take them.

From their website…. “Polaroid PoGo™ – short for Polaroid-on-the-go – is a pocket-sized, inkless digital photo printer that produces full-color photos wirelessly from cell phones and via PictBridge from digital cameras.

The full-color digital photos are created without ink cartridges or ribbons using ZINK Photo Paper™, keeping the printer to about the size of a deck of cards. The paper is a durable material that contains colorless cyan, yellow and magenta dye crystals. Heat activation brings photos to life, colorizing ZINK™ dye crystals, so digital photos can be shared instantly.”

The Polaroid Pogo will be available on July 6th in the USA (Bestbuy www.bestbuy.com ) I’ll keep an eye out for when and if, it hits Australian shores.
