An evening with my Impossible Instant Lab – Creating Instant Photos

Since my bedroom wall is supposed to be decorated with Polaroid instant photos, I spent an evening with my Impossible Instant Lab, developing a series of photos with an iPhone 5 and the Impossible iOS App.

The result being a bunch of color and black & white photos soon to be displayed in my personal little art gallery.

It comes at a price, though. 8 instant photos produced with Impossible Instant film sum up to 20 €, not considering the price of the instant lab. That one actually dropped recently from around 250 € to just 120 €.

So now is a good a time as any to start your instant photo experience even if you don’t want to buy an analog Polaroid camera like my Polaroid SX-70 Landa Camera.

There are only very few paternosters left in Hamburg that can still be visited publicly.

Eve HomeKit Accessories

In September 2014 Elgato introduced Eve Smart Home Sensors supporting Apple’s HomeKit. I am not quite sure what to do with them really, but I am convinced I need stuff like this…

I can’t wait for a connected home. I would even consider renovating on a large scale to make it happen. For more information on the Elgato Eve sensors visit https://www.elgato.com/en/eve

Restroom Ashtrays

Again I was exploring the outer rims of office buildings and discovered something new just next to my favourite elevator (the one with the ashtray).

It must have been the golden age when you were smoking at your desk, in the elevator on your way to the restrooms and … well, we’ll see.

This ashtray has quite superior usability and provides a very user centric service by offering a place to rest your cigarette if you’d choose to wash your hands…
