Introducing LifePrint: The First Augmented Reality Photo Printer to Bring Apple Live Photos, Vine Videos and GoPro Clips to Life in Your Hands

LifePrint, in Partnership With ZINK, Brings Harry Potter-Like Fantasy Tech to Reality

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - November 17, 2015) - LifePrint today announced a Kickstarter for the world's first Augmented Reality photo printer that can print an Apple Live Photo, a GoPro video, or a Vine.

LifePrint is a portable photo printer and app that uses ZINK® Technology to introduce 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 those 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 photos to life like 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 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, a 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.

JC van Dijk, President of ZINK Holdings said, "LifePrint capitalizes on ZINK technology to capture what we see as the future of photo printing in a way that integrates convenience, portability and new ways of sharing photos."

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 is introducing their product on Kickstarter on November 17, and committed to bringing the product to market in mid-2016.

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.
