Instagram-Socialmatic-Concept-5Have you ever wanted to make your Instagram application icon come to life? The folks at ADR Studio have come up with the Instagram Socialcam concept, which resembles a life size Instagram icon that is capable of much more than just capturing artsy images for hipsters far and wide to swoon over. This camera could capture images and print them out on the spot, basically serving as a modern day Polaroid.

But the Instagram Socialmatic is capable of much more than just live photo creation on the spot. Check out the features ADR Studio plans on incorporating into its concept:

  • 16 GB mass storage
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • 4:3 aspect touchscreen
  • 2 main lenses, first for main capture, second for 3D filters, webcam applications and QR Code capturing
  • Optical zoom
  • Led Flash
  • Internal printer to make your Instagram photos real
  • Paper cartridge with Instagram Paper Sheets
  • Dedicated 4 color ink tanks
  • InstaOs 1.0, which put together Facebook and Instagram App feature

After reading that specification list, the Instagram Socialmatic looks to be a killer digital imaging device. The company mentioned that the printable photo papers will have adhesive strips on the back and a blank strip on the bottom of the front so users can stick them anywhere and write messages. Although the Instagram Socialmatic is merely a concept, I think it has a bit more potential than Ikea’s KNAPPA cardboard digital camera.
