Polaroid's latest instamatic doesn't use ink to print photos

Cubes, unwieldy squares, bulky cameras of yore. Regardless of form factor, when the Polaroid name is on a camera it means you're getting instant photos. With the company's latest shooter, the Snap, you're getting what looks like a pocketable device that uses proprietary tech to print photos using zero ink. Instead, the ZINK (get it?) paper you load in the 10MP pictograph box uses heat to activate color crystals and reproduce your 2-inch by 3-inch masterpiece. And of course, since this is camera made in 2015 there's a selfie timer and filter presets (color, black and white, vintage) in addition to a Micro SD card slot. Interested? All it takes is $99 to sate your curiosity sometime later this year.
