If you’re a child of the 1970’s like me you were probably a little sad to see the end of the Polaroid camera last year.  But fear not some bright spark has come up with the Poladroid.  You install it onto your PC or Mac and then you just drag and drop photos from your files onto the camera, and then out pops a polaroid picture which develops like the original, if you shake it the process speeds up.


As you can see we’ve been having lots of fun with it, Miss L thinks that actual physical photos are cute and from the ‘olden times’.  The thought of shaking a photo to develop it to her is hilarious,  whereas I thought it was state of the art when I was 5.  I suspect that her kids will think that the Home Computer equally amusing!

  1. Thanks for the trip down memory lane- it will be very interesting in 10 years to see how far technology will go- Heaven help me- I’m still trying to figures out what we have now, with help from my children of course- I guess I may be going to my grandchildren for help someday :}
    Have a great day.

  2. I like Polaroids too. It brings back my childhood memories as well, and I love the vintagy look of the photos.

  3. I’m SO getting that. I won a polaroid camera in a competition held by them in the 80’s (oh I was so arty back then..) and I still have it. I think it has one photo left in it.
    Thanks for passing this on.

  4. No. WAY! This is the first I’m hearing of this. And I need it. really, really need it. 🙂 I still have a Polaroid camera tucked away in my drawer…if only it were small enough to tuck in my pocket like my digital, I’d drag that sucker everywhere!!
