Instagram Could Become Actual Camera

ADR Studio has designed a physical version of the insanely popular iPhone app.

40 million residents of Planet Earth have already gone Instagram crazy, causing Facebook to buy the whole thing for a cool ONE BILLION dollars. What’s the next logical step, you may ask? It could look something like this: the Socialmatic Instagram IRL Camera!

Designers over at ADR Studio in Italy have recently showcased their newest creation, and it appears to be even more addictive than the phone-based version — if that’s even possible. Not only does this square guy boast a 16 GB mass storage device, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, it’s also touchscreen operated, with two lenses and an inbuilt webcam application.

Following on from ye olde Polaroid tradition, the camera would also have an inbuilt colour printer, so your shots would be processed instantly on sticky-backed paper. People would even scan your name (which appears on all the paper) to follow your Instagram account online. Stalker alert! It may only be a concept design at the moment, but given the popularity of the iPhone app, we wouldn't be surprised to see this being made for the mass market soon.
