YAWN.... another product aimed firmly at Hipsters, who apparently ironically don't get the Polaroid "rainbow" lines.

Come on Shaun...if you strap it to your bicycle that will "develop" the images for you so you don't have to shake them and blow on it to see what you got!

Shaun, you're missing a big opportunity here... buy $100 of them and go sell them on Davie St. as Pride Cameras for $200.

Edit... I think I may get one of these if I could find a picatinny or weaver mount.

Well... unless I'm mistaken, the Polaroid logo with rainbow lines came before that 'other' reference.

As to the camera... I think it will allow younger kids to do POV stuff without the price point of a GoPro. Don't know what their target demographic is, but I'm guessing they aren't trying to sway any GoPro customers over to Polaroid.
