LifePrint Wireless Social Photo Printer Tue, 01 Apr 2014 10:17:21 +0000 Lifeprint wireless social photo printer 300x300 LifePrint Wireless Social Photo Printer

We can’t deny the fact that there are people that will take photos of everything that they do, wherever they go, whether it is a food, a beautiful scene, and etc. Because of too many photos there will come a time that you will need to buy extra storage for your pictures aside from uploading them to social networking sites because you want to keep them as a precious memories. Worse case is that you might delete them accidentally or the drive that holds the data will be corrupt on the long usage or whatsoever the reason. My point here is that with this latest technology called LifePrint, now you can easily print fresh photos taken a few seconds ago.

LifePrint is a portable printer that can print 30 photos on the go for a single charge. Not just that it can be also use remotely to print images from anywhere using its companion app. The printer can be at your desk at home, and even if you’re on vacation, the image will still print which is really a cool stuff, right? Users don’t even need to be connected to a WiFi network, all they need is to connect to a 3G data or better cellular data network. By the way, you will need to buy film for this, and it can only hold about 10 prints-worth of paper. If you want to buy more prints, LifePrint hopes to have film available through retailers and its website once the Kickstarter campaign is finished.

Lastly, LifePrint isn’t just a portable printer, it also works as a social network where you can follow other LifePrint users, so you can easily print to each other’s printers. You can also choose to share pictures through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. You  can also reject unwanted photos from your print queue before they waste your ink. That’s good because right now, the ink is a little pricey – 30 prints for $20.00
