This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
LIfePrint is an App, a worldwide social printer network, and a portable printer that enables a truly unparalleled photo experience. Create Augmented Reality photos, then instantly print those photos directly from your Apple or Android smartphone. Additionally, you can share these real photos with your family, friends, and followers by simply printing to any LifePrint printer in the world! Every photo can tell a story using our Augmented Reality HyperPhoto technology, truly bringing photographs into the new millennium… it’s about time.
Born out of a passion for photographs and a desire for freeing our special moments from digital screens, their team has been working on this project for over 2 years building the use cases, designing the architecture, building the molds for the prototypes, identifying all components necessary for mass production, and engaging with the supply chain. They’ve spent countless hours defining the best possible experience for sharing physical photos and then developed a fully working Bluetooth version for iPhone. Though the app is not yet complete, it is currently well under development. They have manufacturing partners eager to begin tooling and building their hardware. They’ll make this happen on time!
As of January 11th, this project has raised around $185,000 of their $30,000 goal. This project only has 3 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $129, you will get one LifePrint App, Printer, and 10 photos. For a pledge of $250, you will two LifePrint printers, apps, and 20 photos.
