In today's world where technology reaches the realms of social circles, developers are keen to make something to innovate how people interact with each other. One example of this is LifePrint, an app, a network and a portable printer all rolled into one device to deliver a true, unparalleled photo experience. Think about the newspaper circulation from the fantasy novel Harry Potter, only this time, people will have to use their smartphones as windows to see the technology.
LifePrint is a Kickstarter project that can add Augmented Reality to a user's pictures. Instead of printing still photographs that only take a single moment, LifePrint boasts printed out photographs that features an embedded video inside. Afterwards, the video can easily be watched by pointing a device at the print itself.
Anyone can create Augmented Reality Photos by instantly printing them directly from their Android or iOS devices. Furthermore, they will also be able to share it with their families, friends and followers by just printing them with any LifePrint printer.
LifePrint uses its unique Augmented Reality Hyperphoto Technology to make photographs, which can easily come to life by secretly embedding a video into any photos it prints. Users can also easily determine whether a photo is a HyperPhoto when a watermark at the bottom right hand is present.
What's surprising about LifePrint is that it doesn't require ink to print out photos. The company has a partnership with ZINK Technology for their special photo papers that produce the colors straight out of the film, similar to how a Polaroid camera prints out its photos.
As of the moment, LifePrint has already surpassed its US$30,000 goal with US$149,399 pledges by backers. Those who want to back the campaign up can still do so, as there are still 16 days remaining until the campaign ends.
