By now, you should be familiar with the iPhone-exclusive social network called Instagram. Instagram is used by many and allows you to share photos taken with your iPhone’s camera.

We love showing you guys cool projects over at Kickstarter, and today, we have one that’s based around Instagram. The crew over at BREAKFAST have created a new device called Instaprint that prints Instagram photos, based on the location of where the photos are taken at…

Instaprint is a location based photo booth that can transform parties and events by putting a camera in everyone’s hand. By setting Instaprint to look out for specific locations or hashtags, any Instagram tagged appropriately will automatically be printed out on inkless paper. Get one for your next party, event, wedding, fiesta….

That’s right, every party goer that uses Instagram will be able to take a photo, hashtag it, and then the Instaprint will automatically print the pictures on inkless paper, right on the spot. It seems perfect for capturing all of the fun at your next house party. And hey, you might even consider getting the Intoxicase, which will track your alcohol consumption, to add to the drunken fun.

BREAKFAST has already used the Instaprint prototype at product launches and a variety of different parties, and is ready to kick the product into mass production.

Instaprint uses a unique “inkless paper”, so you don’t have to deal with ink cartridges that need constant replacement. The inkless technology pulls the color right from the paper itself. It’s pretty cool.

Setting up the Instaprint for the first time, you will be required to download the free iOS app that will allow you to control certain aspects like the Wi-Fi network and your account. With your Instaprint account you can control your event hastags and more.

Pledges start at $5, but for the hefty price of $399, you will receive 1 Instaprint with controller, 1 coiled power cable, 1 power supply, and 20 sheets of inkless paper. BREAKFAST also has additional packages available on its Kickstarter page. The Instaprint still has a long way to go in its funding, however, currently sitting at $34,626 out of $500,000.

Will you be purchasing the Instaprint?

    It could define how we print photos from our iPhones. I look to hear more about this new gadget later on.

      2 things:

      1) the quality of pictures won’t compare to modern photo printers.
      2) At $399 to print a picture from an iPhone which is far from the best quality camera is not going to take the world by storm.

      It’s just another toy for fanboys,

    Chu Li Fun of China just won the 10,000 dollar gift card….CHINA AND THERE MASSIVE POPULATION

  • They want $500,000? Are they out of their minds? The idea is cool, but I doubt they’ll reach their goal.

    So what does inkless paper cost a sheet? 3, 4, 5 bucks. Sounds like a party for the 1%ers. Sure Romney will start bragging about his Instaprint parties.

    I thought inkless photo printing has been around for at least a few years. Thermal or something like that, and rather pricey with low quality. May look good after the beverages have been flowing.
