On the intersection of technology, culture, and everyday life: My semi-updated space to collect and link my thoughts about interesting things I spot.
Quite a few fans of Polaroid have tried to campaign for its eternal survival.
Not sure if Poladroid offers much solace. The application lets people edit their digital photos into those iconic white frames. I like its familiar sound of the photo emerging from the camera, and its slow Polaroid-like fade-in of an increasingly vibrant image. Cool application concept, but for me, something is still missing in the digital replication. I love the texture of film on my fingers and the immediacy of the physical image repeated a few minutes after the physical moment. Perhaps Poladroid might feel even more comforting as a mobile app. As is, it is already attracting a following.
