While we’ve seen many smartphone makers try and fail to sell smartphones with "modular" hardware features, Motorola seems to have been the most successful with its Moto Mods. Okay, they may not technically be "modular" …

The Insta-Share Printer reminds us a lot of old Polaroid cameras from back in the day. For those of you too young to remember, you’d snap a picture, it would spit out a photo, and you’d wave it until the image showed up.

The technology is a little more advanced here. The mod uses ZINK paper and promises 2 x 3-inch smudge-proof pictures. ZINK paper uses no ink and uses a thermal process to press pictures onto paper in a single press. It’s also water and tear resistant and has a sticky back so you can immediately stick it on a surface.



The mod attaches to the rear of your Moto Z device and features a dedicated camera button. You can use it for more than just printing pictures from your camera, too. If you spy a picture you’d like to print from Facebook, Instagram, or Google Photos, you can print those off as well. To give your pictures some more flair, you can customize them with filters, borders, or text before you print them out.

The biggest question remaining is how much you’d be willing to pay for the ability to print 2 x 3-inch pictures right from your phone. The Polaroid Insta-Share Printer will run you a cool $200. That seems pretty expensive to us when you can easily share your pictures with your friends on Facebook or Instagram. Or, you could just buy the standalone Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer for half the cost.
