LifePrint Wireless Photo Printer Lets You Share Photos Online and Offline

Many of us stock our photos only as digital copies, but a new company called LifePrint might get you back to printing photographs. The company’s eponymous device lets you print photos wirelessly wherever you are and makes it easy to share photos with other LifePrint users.

The printer works with iOS and Android devices and makes 3″ x 4″ photographs. You can print any image that’s on your camera roll to LifePrint, which means you can print the images you edited or downloaded from various apps. You can send photos to the printer over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or even a data connection through the LifePrint app.

For example, you can take a picture while you’re out and have a print waiting for you when you get home, or even have someone abroad within print your photo within a few seconds of capturing it. Couple that wireless capability with the printer’s battery – it can print up to 30 photos per charge – and you can even set up a mobile photo booth.

You can emulate LifePrint’s wireless features with a modern printer, a router and a bit of programming. But what makes LifePrint more convenient is the social network feature of its mobile app. It behaves much like Instagram where you can follow other users, except with LifePrint you can add the images of the people you follow to your printing queue. It’s a shame LifePrint can’t print out larger photos, because otherwise it would be a great way for artists and photographers to send free posters to their followers.

Thankfully, the LifePrint app lets you reject the photos shared by the people in your network without informing them of the rejection. You can also keep to yourself and stay out of LifePrint’s social network.

Take a photo of your browser’s lunch, apply some filters, and pledge at least $99 (USD) on Kickstarter to get a LifePrint printer as a reward. LifePrint will sell film packs in three variants: 10 prints for $20, 30 for $20 and 100 for $50. Shipping will be free for the $50 pack. A lot of consumers might be turned off by the price of the film, but I say that’s a plus. It’ll force them to think hard about the pictures they want to print. And it will give you a good alibi when your friends start asking why you didn’t print the selfies they sent you.
