Instagram Inspires Real Life Camera

Italian designer Antonio De Rosa of ADR Studio Design has imagined what the Instagram app would look like turned into an actual camera. He made the above YouTube video with the schematics demonstrating the digital camera that is shaped like and has the features of the app, but works almost like a polaroid because it has a printer built in.

De Rosa is trying to raise $50,000 to get the camera built through an Indiegogo pledge page. Here is more about the Instagram Socialmatic project: “Take your shoot with Instagram Socialmatic, make your photo cool as you want and share it directly on Facebook trough the powerful InstaOs. If you want, you can print it directly on Instagram Paper Sheets, thanks to the internal printer. Every Instagram printed photo reports on front side your Instagram nickname and a QR code, to be followed by another Instagrammer, simply pointing his/her Socialmatic on your printed QR Code.”

What apps would you turn into a real life object?
