Prepare for your mind to be blown.

Tbh, when we first saw this, we totally thought it was a hoax because it just seems too good to be true - but it IS true and we're now officially obsessed with it.

The Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer is the size of a smartphone and it's a full-on printer. We know what you're thinking: But where do the ink cartridges go? They don't go anywhere because you don't need them.

The printer uses ZINK (zero ink) paper, which produces photo-quality, full-color output without using ink cartridges, ribbons, or toner. How do they do it? The paper that contains dye crystals which are activated upon printing. Yes, seriously! No smudges, no expensive cartridge replacements - just instant 2 x 3 photo amazingness sent straight from your smartphone to the device.

As an added bonus, the photos have a sticky back so you can 'hang' them anywhere instantly, too. So, the next time you snap an epic selfie with your friends, you can have it hanging on your wall in less than a minute!

There's a little tiny bit of bad news, though. The printer won't be available until May, but you CAN pre-order it here.
