That good old shake and wait just a minute Polaroid nearly instant gratification is making a bit of a comeback with some retro photography fans, but today most people take pictures with their smartphones.

Introduced this morning, the Insta-Share Printer from Polaroid may be one of the cooler Moto Mods we've seen to date.

Just like the name says, the mod turns your phone into a Polaroid camera, letting you instantly print pictures you take or have on your phone instantly.

The photo paper features an adhesive back that you can peel off and stick onto, well, whatever you want. If you spy a picture you'd like to print from Facebook, Instagram, or Google Photos, you can print those off as well.

The add-on clips onto the back of the Moto Z and features a physical shutter button that can be used to activate your phone's camera. "The Polaroid Insta-Share Printer mod uses Zink™ Zero-Ink™ Paper for printing 2 x 3" photos. Motorola's also promised several editing options, including filters and special borders, to help make your snaps even more twee. It's $200 and can print custom 2 x 3 pictures with different effects.

It seems to be pretty much exactly what you expect.

The Polaroid Insta-Share Printer, as it's called, looks like a little angular box snapped to the phone like a backpack.
