Use the included color filter options to make your pics appear old-school, or shoot some retro-looking video. Although a Japanese product, it is available internationally here.
Inspired by her local farmers markets, and with the help of the mobile app Instagram, Los Angeles-based Julie Lee creates stunning food collages. By deliberately and sparingly arranging the food items she collects, the static images are arranged in a way to keep the viewer’s eyes moving.
Instagram, which Lee uses brilliantly, gives the photos a soft and inviting tone — making them worthy of becoming your desktop [or guest room] wallpaper. See more of Julie’s work here, along with tips and stories from her culinary adventures.
Zhu Jingxuan, a student from Donghua University’s Fashion & Art Design Institute, has created what could be a revolutionary sharing device, and a foodie’s wet dream. The prototype is a combination camera, smell extractor, and printer — that will capture a photo and the aroma of your meal, then print it onto a postcard with the food’s smell embedded.
The idea for the ‘Food Printer‘ was inspired by Zhu’s travel overseas, and wanting a better way of sharing her food experiences with friends and family back home. Sounds great, but can we get Instagram on that thing?

Now, those Instagram photos of your lunch, cat, and feet can be turned into chocolate bars, with help from Cocoagraph. Using an edible photo print, Cocoagraph will transfer your seemingly vintage photo onto an artisan chocolate bar of your choosing — milk, white, dark or organic dark chocolate. And, to help keep the nostalgia train rolling, the bars can mimic the look of an old Polaroid.
Actually, Cocoagraph can not only turn your Instagram photo into a chocolate treat, but will print almost anything that you send them. Check them out.
