IMPOSSIBLE Bridges the Gap Between Analog and Digital with the Instant Lab
IMPOSSIBLE has taken the wraps off their latest innovation, the Instant Lab, with a new Kickstarter campaign. Designed to bridge the digital and analog worlds, the latest device is capable of turning digital iPhone images into analog instant photos using IMPOSSIBLE film. The Instant Lab features a cradle to hold an iPhone with a highly specialized lens designed to focus the image from the Retina display onto the film plane. At the base of the device is a high-precision film processing unit with extendable bellows to ensure the correct distance between the iPhone, optical system and film. At the heart of the device is the IMPOSSIBLE Film Processing Unit (FPU), a modular platform designed to process and develop IMPOSSIBLE instant film. An accompanying app will allow users to select and crop images and will do all the necessary calculations to create the proper exposure regardless of the kind of IMPOSSIBLE instant film used. From today until October 8 IMPOSSIBLE aims to raise at least $250,000 USD to fund the production and those who decide to pre-purchase the device on Kickstarter will be eligible for a chance to win special edition versions, such as the All Black version and the limited production Gold Edition.
