  • saved the last Polaroid production plant for integral instant film in Enschede Netherlands (2008)
  • invented and produced new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras
  • saved analog instant photography from extinction by releasing various, brand new and unique instant films (2010)

The Impossible Instant Lab is:

  • a new analog instant device that turns digital iPhone images into real analog instant photos on Impossible film, using an accompanying Impossible iPhone app
  • one of the very first hardware concepts using the Impossible FPU (Film Processing Unit) which will serve as the basis for a range of new analog instant gear to be introduced in 2013
  • demonstrated in this video which presents “Impossible Instant Lab by The Impossible Project”:

The Impossible Instant Lab is designed to transform any digital image via your iPhone into an instant photo that is exposed using only the light from the display, then processed and developed by chemicals:

  1. Select an image from the Instant Lab app
  2. Place the iPhone in the cradle
  3. Slide open the shutter on the base
    • A signal tells you when the exposure is finished

  4. Close the shutter
  5. Push the button
    • The Instant Lab ejects your photo, ready to develop in the palm of your hand

  6. Collapse the tower and the Instant Lab is fully portable and ready to go
