The recently introduced Moto Mod adds the power of an old school Polaroid cameras — or newer Instax Mini cameras — to a smartphone. All a user needs to do is snap a picture and wave the printout to develop the image.

Like all other Moto Mods, the module attaches to the back of the device and features a dedicated camera button. The accessory can print out images from a smartphone’s internal storage, as well as pictures from Facebook, Instagram and Google Photos.

Additionally, the mod allows users to customize the pictures with filters, borders or text before printing them out.

The snap-on Polaroid camera uses ZINK paper to produce 2 x 3-inch smudge-proof picture. ZINK paper doesn’t use any ink and instead utilizes a thermal process to press pictures onto a paper that’s also water and tear resistance.

The new Moto Mod retails for $200 USD ($255 CAD) in the U.S. We’ve reached out to Motorola for Canadian availability and pricing.

Update:11/20/2017: According to a Motorola spokesperson the Polaroid Insta-Share Printer will be available in Q1 of 2018 and the Canadian pricing will be similar to the American.
