Dear Kickstarters,

We are already approaching our funding target on the very first day, and we are honestly blown away by your support. You proved that real photos do have a place in today's digital world. We are thrilled and very proud.

If you want to meet both of us in person and see the Instant Lab in its first public appearance (and melt your own digital images into Impossible photos), please visit us at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco on 12th Sept in the "Hardware Alley". If you are in Cologne, Germany from 18th- 23th September we're looking forward to meeting you at Photokina.

Thank you so much for believing in the IMPOSSIBLE. Together we will make it happen.

- Florian and Christian
  Co-Founders and Managing Directors

      Absolutely awesome.
      Hey Tom may have a point. The sooner you can start and the more $ raised, the more inventory you can build for continued sales. We are all pumped to be part of this project.
