Motorola's new Mod is a snap-on Polaroid photo printer

The mini printer works when attached to the back of a compatible phone. When everyone else has all but abandoned modular smartphones, the company just keeps on churning out new Moto Mods. The Moto Mod itself even has a physical shutter you can use to launch the camera. The Insta-Share Printer has a physical button on it that you can press to launch the camera and take a picture. Images can then be printed out using Polaroid's 2 x 3-inch Premium ZINK photo paper (a pack of 20 sheets will run you about $9 on Amazon). To give your pictures some more flair, you can customize them with filters, borders, or text before you print them out.

Back in the day, the way most people took photos was with a Polaroid instant camera of the sort that shot pictures out the front for you to watch develop before your eyes.

The biggest question remaining is how much you'd be willing to pay for the ability to print 2 x 3-inch pictures right from your phone.

The pilot episode will be penned by Derek Kolstad , the creator and writer of the much-loved and violent John Wick film series. Hulu and Fox21 are developing a series based on the franchise, set to release on the former's streaming service.

Motorola has shown commitment to its take on modularity by regularly releasing new Moto Mods for the Moto Z series.

What do you think of the idea of the Insta-Share Printer Moto Mod? Users can print photos from Facebook, Instagram, as well as Google Photos. The printer will set you back $200 when it pops up in Verizon stores and Motorola.com later this week.
