I am a professional photographer and have used almost all technology devices for taking pictures and printing them. Recently I have heard about a new device called Polaroid ZIP instant printer. My friends have told me some features about it but I am yet to explore it. Can some tell me about its size and price? Also what technology it uses to print pictures? How does it get refilled? Does it needs to be installed somewhere? Please help.
What are the features of Polaroid Zip instant Printer?
The Polaroid ZIP instant printer is intended for printing out snapshots from either iOS smartphones or Android smartphones by the use of the Bluetooth service, wireless service or the NFC technology in less than 60 seconds. The Polaroid Zip Instant Printer is now priced between $129.99 and $159.99 online with free shipping.
This instant printer is a pouch-sized device that prints out a sized 2”x3” full coloured smudge-proof pictures without the use of an ink cartridge, a ribbon, or a toner.
The ZINK printing technology is a modernization in printing in that, this technology employs the knowledge of chemistry, engineering, physics, and image science among others. The Technological concept used in printing is basically simply but extraordinary. The Polaroid Zip Instant Printer weighs 0.19Kg with a dimension of 7.4cm x 12cm. The full thickness of the ZINK Paper layer is less than the thickness of a human hair, which is white in colour until heat from a ZINK-enabled printer activates the layers to create colouring smidgeons implanted in the paper. Below is a diagram to explain how the layers of the ZINK paper look like and are arranged.
