You don’t need to buy a separate Polaroid camera or go to the developers to create tangible memories…

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to have a physical memento made in real time showing you, your loved ones, and friends enjoying a momentous event?

There’s a new French start-up in the digital market that offers a revolutionary way to create actual physical keepsakes of memorable occasions.

Its an innovative phone case that prints out images instantly straight from your smartphone.

No Polaroid needed…

Prynt allows users to turn their mobile phone into a mini-developer which churns out photos…

…even without the use of ink!

Using thermal zinc photo strips, not unlike a Polaroid camera, Prynt photos are both tear and smudge-resistant. Each time a user prints an image, the phone case embeds a hidden video that links to the Prynt app where it can be viewed over and over again.

All users need to do is to hold their phone over any Prynt-ed photo, and they can see the image come to life in augmented reality on their mobile’s screen.

Here’s how it works:

Initially introduced via Kickstarter, Prynt began as a concept back in 2014 by its founders, former French engineers and photo enthusiasts, Clément Perrot and David Zhang. Today, with a staff of 20 based in San Francisco, Prynt is overturning the impression that people who take thousands of digital images each day are unlikely to print any of them.

The phone case is equipped with a host of other features, allowing users to digitally add text, stickers, frames, and filters to their images before reviewing and printing them out.

As of now, the revolutionary phone case with its interchangeable adapter system is compatible with the iPhone 6s, 6, 5s, 5c, 5, and Samsung Galaxy S5 and S4, but with the startup’s success, the company is likely to expand its production to include other mobile device brands.

Hopefully available for all phone brands and models soon…

While the Prynt phone case is currently available for $150 on the company’s website, it is reportedly planning to offer the product on Amazon, and is celebrating another month of its existence with a Valentine’s Day discount of $20!

Medical science is growing by leaps and bounds, making use of never-heard-of-before technology to improve peoples' lives.

A new machine that's recently come on the scene can now bring a dead heart back to life!

Designed by a Massachusetts-based company called TransMedics, the device is a surprisingly small box on wheels that can preserve the heart of a clinically dead donor long after it has ceased to beat.

Gigantic Gas Cloud on Collision Course With Our Galaxy At 700,000 Miles Per Hour

In case you didn’t know, a gigantic gas cloud with the power of 2 million suns, is heading fast towards the Earth as we speak. It’s speeding at 700,000 miles per hour.

The headline alone can induce anyone into a panic. This is not a drill. It is true that a giant gas cloud with the power of 2 million suns is speeding our way at the ghastly speed of 700,000 miles per hour. Before you go hysterical, the Smith Cloud won't reach the Milky Way galaxy until the thirty million years. You can relax for now.

This is the Smith Cloud visualized in comparison to the Earth's moon.

This is the Smith Cloud visualized in comparison to the Earth's moon.

The Smith Cloud, named after its discoverer Gail Smith, was first detected in Netherlands. It is full of sulfur that is said to be over 11,000 light-years long and 2,500 light-years wide and contains the mass of about a millions suns. This gigantic gas cloud was likely spat out from the outer edges of our galaxy. This is pretty much a case of "what goes up must come down," said the Hubble Space Telescope astronomers.

Meet the Next Einstein, the Physics Genius Who Built a Plane at Age 14!

22-year old Physics genius is the real-life Sheldon Cooper

What were you doing at age 12? Perhaps like me, you've been playing a lot of video games. Well compared to us mere mortals, Sabrina Gonzales Pasterski is the embodiment of a young genius oozing with potential. At age 12 she already co-piloted an FAA1 plane, and at age 14 she built her own single-engine plane and sought certification for it in MIT. And that was just the beginning...

When 14-year old Pasterski walked into MIT seeking approval for her self-built plane, she caught the attention of MIT Executive Secretary Peggy Udden because she is a very young achiever.

At first, professors at MIT were not fully convinced with what the genius girl can do and thus she was waitlisted for the MIT program for Physics. It was Udden who showed Professors Allen Haggerty and Earll Murman the video of Pasterski building her own plane at 14 years old that convinced them to accept her into the program. Haggerty has this to say when he reminisce watching the video,
