Print your Instagram pictures (soon)

It was only a matter of time.

Instagram, the app of choice for budding photographers everywhere may soon be producing actual, tangible photos.

New York interactive agency Breakfast has developed a printer that prints straight from Instagram, producing a Polaroid-like photo you can actually touch, frame and tuck in your wallet.

We wonder though – will it work? When half the point of Instagram is the very, very widespread sharing of photos via social media, how appealing will it be to have a tangible product you can only exhibit to those physically near to you?

With a forecast price tag of close to £400, it might not end up being a mass-market product. We’ll still be very keen to check it out when it hits the market!
