Polaroid’s GL10, Instant Souvenir Maker

Because a hard copy can be more personal than a “post,” there’s the Polaroid GL10

The Want: A handy photomat that will not only immortalize the summer intern sleeping at her desk but also document after-hours mayhem with co-workers. Needs to be a cinch to use and come in on budget.
The Get: Polaroid’s GL10 Instant Mobile Printer ($169.99, Snap a picture on your BlackBerry, Android, or Windows-compatible mobile phone and then wirelessly send the photo to the GL10 via Bluetooth; a 3 in. x 4 in. color picture spits out of the 6 in. x 4.5 in. printer 45 seconds later. You can also e-mail your iPhone photos to your Mac or PC; iPhone shots are also compatible with the GL10 via Bluetooth or USB cable.
