Instagram Camera: Hipsters Unite to Fund the Socialmatic Camera 0

Exciting news has emerged that the ‘Instagram Socialmatic’ concept may well become a reality. Italian designer Antonio De Rosa has decided to raise funds for the production of the camera using Indiegogo, a crowd funding platform not unlike Kickstarter used to raise money for projects or campaigns.

Mr. De Rosa has set a goal to raise $50,000 before July 1 in order to advance the project to the next stage.  Around $3000 has been raised so far, and a “massive” discount off of the stated “less than $350” price has been guaranteed for all contributors.

Here are the specifications provided on the project page:

– 16 GB mass storage;

– Wifi and Bluetooth;

– 4:3 touchscreen;

– 2 main lens, 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 colors ink tanks;

– InstaOs 1.0, which put together Facebook and Instagram App feature;

– Pairing with iPhone and Android App;
