Polaroid iPhone decal kicks it so old school, odds are not many people will know why it’s cool

Hey, remember Polaroid Cameras? No? Well, um, remember the song “Hey Ya” by OutKast from a few years back where they told girls to shake their butts “Like a Polaroid Picture”? Well, they were referring to the instant photos that popped out of Polaroid cameras, and which people would often shake under the mistaken assumption they would develop faster. Well anyway, someone who was apparently born before 1978 and is old enough to remember them has created a pretty cool iPhone Polaroid camera sticker that will help transform your sleek, state-of-the-art iPhone into a hideous piece of legacy tech known as the Rainbow OneStep Polaroid Land camera!

That’s right, for a mere $6 you’ll be able to spend countless hours trying to explain why you put this sticker on your iPhone. You can get yours at Photojojo.

    That is why we love you Doc. Always SPOT ON !

  2. Not I don’t love Photojojo, but I just want to point out that a lot of Etsy stores have them. They might be $6 or even $10, but the shipping costs are miniscule in comparization. They wanted $9 to ship a $6 product to Norway, whereas Etsy stores generally take $1 or $2.

    For what its worth, I recently went to a wedding and discovered that polaroid film is back in production. The couple’s guest book had slots in each page to insert a polaroid. The camera they had sitting there took me back. It was new, but it was like if Sony were to make an 8-track or a record player today. So weird to see. So awesome that demand brought that film back from extinction, though.
    I’d get one of these, by the way.

    How true. It’s an interestingly ironic retro look — for about 5 seconds.

    Uhh Joe, instant film never went out of production. I have a Polaroid Land Auromatic 100 (really old school, folding bellows). This thing takes roller film but even that can be had if you’re willing to pay an arm and a leg. The question is whether or not you can get the battery nowadays. I just removed the old “Murray’s Duracell” (back before the copper-top had a copper top) from the camera. It still had a sticker on it from Sears, Roebuck & Co. cost $2.19

    @Tom: Instant film did go out of production, the company Polaroid doesn’t exist anymore. However, Fuji has started producing instant films and cameras (Instax – not compatible with Polaroid as the batteries are in the camera, not the film pack), and the former head of production at Polaroid has started a new company called Impossible that produces a new kind of instant films compatible with Polaroid cameras.
