The Digital Polaroid Camera

Remember the days of the instant Polaroid camera?  You take a picture then the photo pops out the bottom of the camera right before you shove it under your armpit to help keep it warm and develop it faster?  Ah, the good old days.  Well Polaroid has a new and improved 2012-style instant camera.  This awesome digital camera can shoot and print photos by itself!  The 10-megapixel, 6x digital zoom camera has a built-in printer that produces 2" x 3" color photos in less than a minute.  The prints are smudge- and tear-proof, fade- and water-resistant, and have a peel-off backing for display as stickers.  Before printing, images can be viewed and cropped on the 3" color LCD screen.  Also records video and audio.  http://www.hammacher.com/Product/82256?cm_cat=ProductSEM&cm_pla=AdWordsPLA&source=PRODSEM
