Lifeprint released its mobile application and augmented reality Hypershot printer for Android devices. The mobile app is compatible with the devices running on Android 4.2 Jelly Beans or more.

The printer is designed especially for printing augmented reality photos that come to life in a video format on user’s smartphone.

It allows the user to embed a video of maximum 15-second-long within a printed photo which is known as Augmented Reality Hyperphoto.

The embedded video could be viewed by pointing a smartphone’s camera at the photo using the Lifeprint Augmented Reality Hyperphoto Android application. The picture acts as a video frame for the clip and the app allows the user to select a frame from the video as the printed thumbnail.

The app could be used to print or share the image and videos on various social networking sites like Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook. It can also be shared with the other Lifeprint users.

The printer uses sticky-backed ZINK paper to produce color images without requiring ink cartridges or toners. The printer is powered by Lithium Ion which could print 15 photos per charge and each photo takes only 30 seconds to print.

This printer is available on the market for just $129.95.
