A Polaroid-style phone case can print selfies in under a minute

The allure of instant photo printing may have passed for most folks, despite some semblance of Polaroid hanging around, but a French startup is looking to rekindle the habit. The company is working on Prynt: a phone case that packs a compact printer inside a frame that resembles a point-and-shoot camera. Right now, prototypes are capable of putting ink to paper for physical copies in just under a minute; however, final models will reduce that time to under 30 seconds. The shell also houses 10-30 sheets of paper for individual prints, and thanks to a companion app, outputs can be used to view captured videos with bit of augmented reality magic. There's a physical connection to your phone too, so you won't have to rely on Bluetooth or WiFi to send flies along. Of course, Prynt has a long way to go, but a Kickstarter is planned for early next year where the first units will be available for $99.

SanDisk’s newest iOS storage drive comes with Lightning, too

As great as it was that Apple eliminated the 32GB iPhone in favor of a 64GB model, those whose budget could only stretch to the 16GB model are still in need of more storage. There's plenty of wireless flash drives knocking around, but SanDisk feels that its latest iXpand Flash Drive still has something new to bring to the party. Tailored for gear running iOS 7 and 8, the drive either connects via the built-in lightning cable, pushing photos and videos between the two with ease. A companion app will even let you stream AVI and WMV clips on your iPhone or iPad without having to convert it beforehand. The 16GB base model is available for $59.99, the 32GB is a Best Buy exclusive and is priced at $79.99 and the 64GB-er requires $119.99 of your Earth dollars.
