Prynt Pocket Prints AR Pix Right In Your Hand

The Prynt Pocket is a nifty little device that you snap on to your iPhone and prints out pictures you take - with something extra.


(Prynt Pocket printer for iPhone)

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Prynt Pocket is a new device that attaches to your phone and enables you to instantly print your images on ink-free ZINK sticker paper.

The device, which retails at $149, connects to the iPhone via the Lightning port and doubles as a grip with a physical shutter release and zoom wheel. It can print any photo on your device, but using the Prynt app to take the photo comes with an added benefit: it allows you to embed video data in to the print.

The app allows users to overlay filters and text on images, and it also has the option to record a 10-second video along with the photo. Anyone with the Prynt app can hold the printed photo in front of their camera and see the video play back using AR.

I'm fascinated with the idea of a picture that contains much more information than meets the eye. See the Wholographik from Stand on Zanzibar, by John Brunner and the Agfom potent shot film used in Philip K. Dick's 1964 novel Clans of the Alphane Moon.
