New Film / Production Floor News
Dear Impossible Backers,
As announced in our last update we have started mass production of the Instant Labs and we are excited to share latest news.
Lets start with a perfect product illustration:
New Film Cassette
Our engineers in Enschede (the former Polaroid factory) have developed a new film cassette and changes to the film production process. This allows us to now produce battery-free film packs! And that’s not even the good news! Battery-free production is not only environmentally friendly, but cost efficient! Allowing us to share the benefits with you our customers. In a word, our Impossible camera battery-free film packs stand the test against Polaroid™ camera.
In order to create our new Impossible battery-free film packs, it was necessary to change the cassette construction. It must be noted our battery-free film packs will not power a standard Polaroid™ camera. Likewise, a standard battery film pack is not required for an Impossible camera, however will function in the machine per usual.
The production of our film cassette has started and will be on the market at the official launch of Instant Lab in September. At the moment Kickstarter backers, will receive our regular film packs just to ensure all devices and film are delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Our Impossible Project APP development team did a brilliant job. Among other amazing features, our Impossible app includes a built-in “scanner”. Ever taken a GREAT analog photo and just HAD to share it? Ever wanted to make it a PERFECT digital scan in seconds? Well now you can! Before now, your shot typically included your desk, bed, etc. where your photo was placed. Our app scanner allows you to snap a photo immediately detecting its physical borders. By putting a frame around the image, you can then simply drag each corner exactly over the outer dimensions of the photo and click scan. The app will then throw away the leftovers, straighten the image, and PRESTO! Your photo is ready to share or store in your in your phone for later. SUPER COOL!
Printed Material in the Box
Your Instant Lab box will contain several guides to help you along the way. As an exclusive preview, take a look at the “Quick start Manual”, which you can also download here. Read it to be ready for when your device arrives.
Please enjoy a random selection of impressions from our production floor. We promise things are hot…and not just in the summer sun ☺
Thank you for your support. We cannot wait to deliver your Instant Labs to you!
