Polaroid Lab Photo Maker

There’s an undeniable charm associated with printed photos that Polaroid Originals has used as the basis of its marketing tactics in the era of smartphones. The company built upon the nostalgia of the 80-year old Polaroid brand, and breathed new life into the classic instant analog cameras. And while the old-fashioned cameras are fun for capturing unique shots, they’re clunky and there are many instances where it’s impossible to carry one around. But the new Polaroid Lab desktop device lets you print Polaroid-style film directly from your smartphone.

The printer works with the iPhone 6S and up as well Android devices including current models of Samsung, Huawei, Google Pixel, and One Plus Android handsets. To print a picture, you first select a smartphone image in the Polaroid Originals app, place the phone screen-side down, and press the red button. Using mirrors and a three-lens developing system, the device will produce a grey Polaroid in just a few seconds. Polaroid Originals recommends waiting about 15 minutes though to let the film properly develop. Users can also blow-up a photo and create a collage of multiple Polaroids like in the video below.

“Unlimited cloud storage can actually be your memories’ worst enemy, causing your digital photos to skyrocket in numbers and end up falling into a void of oblivion,” said Polaroid BV CEO Oskar Smolokowski. “The idea behind the Polaroid Lab is that it turns your most previous smartphone photos into tangible Polaroid photographs — bringing them into the world as something you can hold in your hand and store on the fridge rather than in the cloud.”

The Polaroid Lab accepts existing I-Type and 600 series films, and users must be running iOS 11 or above and Android 7 or above on a compatible smartphone. Polaroid Originals has set the price for the Polaroid Lab at $130, and says the device will hit shelves by October 10.

Sonos introduces Move, The First Battery-Powered Sonos Speaker Built For The Outdoors

Today, Sonos introduced Sonos Move, a product that marks the company’s first step outside the home. Building on years of innovation in home audio to unlock the potential for great sound anywhere, Move is a powerful, versatile smart speaker that sounds incredible indoors, outdoors, and on the go. Move represents the best of the Sonos software platform and ecosystem of partners, and supports more than a hundred streaming services, multiple voice assistants, AirPlay2, and more.

Move resets the bar from what you’d expect from a portable speaker with smart, adaptable sound, surprisingly deep bass and a wide sound profile. Perfectly suited for indoor listening and powerful sound on the go, Move is two smart speakers in one. Featuring powerful wireless range, Move is a full part of the Sonos system, even at the furthest corners of the yard. When away from home, Move is Sonos’ first product with Bluetooth audio streaming making it simple to play audio directly from a phone or tablet to Move for great sound on the go.

Move’s versatility did not sacrifice Sonos’ dedication to sound. To ensure an even better listening experience in all the places where Move could go, both indoors and outdoors, Sonos built on its Trueplay tuning technology with the introduction of automatic Trueplay where the speaker tunes itself to perfectly balance the sound for the environment.

Move features a sleek oval shadow-black design. Already developing products meant to last in the home, Sonos took product quality testing to new levels. Its premium design pulls no punches outdoors where Move’s tough durable exterior will withstand falls, bumps, rain and moisture, dust and dirt, UV and extreme temperatures and features a rating of IP56.

Built to play all day, Move’s battery allows for up to ten hours of continuous play time on a single charge. At home, Move easily slides on and off the included indoor charging base to connect every time, ensuring it is always ready for listening. Suspend mode, enabled automatically when not in use or by tapping the power button, reserves the battery for up to five days.

As the first company to support both leading voice assistants, like other voice-enabled Sonos devices, the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are built right in, so you can play music, check the news, control smart home devices, ask questions and much more completely hands free when on WiFi. As part of Sonos’ platform that prioritizes choice, connect to more than 100 streaming services – music, audiobooks, podcasts and more – and control via the Sonos App, with AirPlay 2, or direct from music service apps.

Move is available globally on sonos.com and through partner retailers starting September 24 for $399.
