This printer brings back nostalgia for millennials

Minsu Kim, Yeonju Do & Sunjin Baek present Kodak Memory – a conceptual film-type printer that prints photos in black and white through internal thermal paper.

A palm-sized bundle of nostalgic joy for millennials, Korea-based Minsu Kim, Yeonju Do & Sunjin Baek present ‘Kodak Memory’ – a conceptual film-type printer that brilliantly prints photos in black and white through internal thermal paper.

“We proposed the concept of Kodak Memory while working in a group called YUPD in the Department of Industrial Design at Yeungnam University.

Based on the appearance of  the film paper coming out of the roll – this grayscale printer was designed as a modern reinterpretation of Kodak films of the past” says Kim.

Eye-catching and easy to carry anywhere – this innovative minimalistic product comes in the classic Kodak film roll’s vibrant hues as well as in a black and white version too.

Once one connects this monochrome printing accessory with their smartphone and hits the print button in the compatible app interface – the black and white picture comes out perfectly.

“Kodak Memory is utilized in conjunction with a smartphone and the user can select as well as adjust the desired photo to seamlessly print it in black and white” Kim adds. 

One can take a picture and adjust it to the size and pixels they want as well as edit it by utilizing features such as ‘straighten’ and ‘rotate’. 

This eclectic accessory additionally charges via a USB connection and once the thermal paper roll is finished – one can effortlessly change it by simply pressing the ‘open’ button to perform a quick swap.
