58 Polaroid-Inspired Products

From Photography TP Dispensers to Retro Cameras

— March 19, 2014 — Tech
Retro cameras are constantly being used to inspire offbeat, quirky products, and the Polaroid is no exception. This classic vintage find has made a big comeback as of late, cropping up in revamped versions of the original, and even inspiring products such as toilet paper dispensers. Who knew?

The retro cameras got their claim to fame by taking a quick snap and then seeing it printed off instantly. It's not really a huge surprise then that this is being adapted to gadgets like the iPhone, which normally cannot snap and print. However, certain gadgets are now being developed that enable users to transform their smartphones into these retro cameras with various add-ons and handy devices.
