Location-based technologies and services are becoming increasingly popular as companies recognize the importance of time and location in people’s decision-making process. Instaprint is one such technology that takes the idea of location one step further. It mixes the nostalgia of taking instant photos at a party with the power of location tagging. From the maker of Instagram, Instaprint is a virtual photo booth that prints your party or event photos on the spot, Polaroid-style. As people at the event take Instagram photos, the Instaprint box looks for these photos based on the location tag or hashtag. Then it prints them out, along with their associated comments on Polaroid-style paper. This has been a hit at this year’s SXSW conference as well as the recent Yahoo! PROVOKE Summit.
