This innovative iPhone case turns your phone into a real substitute for an instant camera, allowing you to snap photos with your phone and print them out on the go. A boon for parties and vacations, the Prynt case is streamlined and functional. It’s available in sizes to fit the iPhone 6/6s or 6/6s plus, and it even looks great, with a retro old-school photography vibe that fits well with its mission of taking digital iPhone photos and allowing you to bring them to life in the physical world by printing them out anywhere.

The Prynt case has managed to effectively miniaturize all the components of a digital photo printer. To do this, it uses the Prynt brand’s ZINK paper, which allows for images to be developed without the need for ink cartridges. The Prynt app lets you edit, apply filters and save short video clips which you can then share along with your printed photos.

The app is well-designed, too, with a streamlined UI and an editing environment that will be familiar to anyone used to working with the myriad of apps that have sprung up over the last couple of years aimed at helping you add some glam or personalize your Instagram photos.

The Prynt case goes a step further than photo sharing apps, though, in that it brings the photos you’ve made back into the real world. This way, you’re not just adding to the cloud of digital content that’s swirling around us, but creating a real, tangible memento. The photos are of a good quality, as well.

Finally, one interesting and rather unique feature of the Prynt case and app is that it allows you to encode short video messages along with your printed photos, and friends who have the app can then use your photos to unlock the video.
