Polaroid is finally back with a digital camera that develops instant pictures. The innovation comes from the Zink ink-less technology: its water-resistant paper contains crystals that turn into cyan, magenta and yellow-coloured dots when heated. Once you click, you can develop your 2x3-inch picture in less than a minute. The camera costs $160 and the printing paper is anywhere between $15 to $25.
