Introducing LifePrint: The World’s First Augmented Reality Printer to Bring Apple Live Photos, Vine Videos, and GoPro Clips to Life in Your Hands
LifePrint, in partnership with ZINK, brings Harry Potter fantasy tech to reality

LOS ANGELES, Ca. – June 1st, 2016–  LifePrint is a mobile app platform and portable photo printer that uses ZINK Imaging that introduces the world to augmented reality photos. LifePrint's photo printer and mobile app lets users easily print photos from any social media via their smartphone and then uses augmented reality to bring photos to life. LifePrint is capable of printing and sharing images from GoPro cameras, Apple Live Photos, Vine videos, Instagram, YouTube and more, bringing printed imagery to life as seen in the Harry Potter films.

Robert Macauley, Co-Founder of LifePrint said, “What we’re doing with LifePrint is bringing physical photos into the new millennium. LifePrint makes real photographs as rich and dynamic as the memories you want to capture. Plus, who doesn’t love Harry Potter photos?”

Printing with LifePrint is easy: Just open the LifePrint app, select any photo or video from your camera roll, and hit print. The photo will wirelessly print in about 60 seconds over your data network via Bluetooth.

He added, “Augmented reality is just one feature of LifePrint: We’ve also added a social element. We have a whole social network backend where users can send and receive real photos with friends who have the app, making it more than just a printer. Think of it, Vine and YouTube celebrities can even print out real videos to their fans and give them something that comes to life in their hands, which is much better experience for a fan than just clicking ‘like’ on a screen.”

At the heart of LifePrint’s toner-free, compact convenience is ZINK technology. LifePrint produces high-quality, beautiful photos without requiring expensive ink cartridges.

LifePrint is a device that will change the way consumers print, view and share photos - and opens up a new opportunity for augmented reality to everyone.

LifePrint was developed and backed by a team of data, print, video and photography enthusiasts and was designed to be portable, fun, reliable and simply easy to use across all devices and formats.

Orders and contributions are currently being taken for LifePrint starting at $99 on Indiegogo InDemand.
