Lifeprint's AR Printers are Now Available at Best Buy

Lifeprint, a company that offers live augmented reality photographs, recently announced that its AR printers will be available at Best Buy both online and in stores across America. The printers churn out Lifeprint's patented Augmented Reality Hyperphotos, physical and shareable prints that are like Instagram videos thrust into the everyday world.

For those who might still be confused, they can hardly be faulted; Lifeprint's service itself is more or less completely novel. The system lets users record videos through Lifeprint's app in much the same way that one would take a video on Instagram. However, instead of sharing that video virtually, users can connect their phones to Lifeprint's AR printers, select a still, and print that out. Here's where the magic begins: those printed photos can then be viewed through the Lifeprint app with one's smartphone camera, and the images will animate to the complete video on the smartphone screen.
