Mechanical and software engineer Sarah has created a new instant film camera in the form of the Alulu which is capable of printing images directly onto receipt paper. The Alulu camera uses thermal receipt paper to offer a carefree and environmentally friendly way to capture and create.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Alulu Camera which is launched via Kickstarter this week to raise the required funds needed to make the jump into production. Earlybird pledges are available from $79 or roughly £63 for the first 100 backers and worldwide delivery is expected to take place during December 2020.
“Remember that trip to the coffee shop with an old friend or that wild concert by printing a photo on your receipt — create a receipt of your experience. Stick the photos in your scrapbook or bullet journal, create collages, share them with friends, display in your wallet, hang a scroll in your room, make a scarf, it’s up to you!”
“The Alulu Camera prints your photos instantly onto your choice of a new blank roll of thermal (receipt) paper OR your old receipts. It’ll cost you next to nothing! All those receipts you receive from retail, restaurants, etc. are NOT recyclable. Now, you can reuse receipts as film in the Alulu Camera! Your receipt + your photo on top = the perfect memorabilia. Without the pressure to perfect each expensive photograph using traditional film cameras, you are free to create and experiment like never before. Rewind the thermal paper after your first print to create a double exposure.”
