SnapJet is an open source, portable Polaroid printer for your smartphone. It prints ultra high resolution images in seconds, and without any custom apps. It will be launching a kickstarter in the fall. www.SnapJet.com
I'm an engineer and designer, but most of all a maker. My background is in material science—a multidisciplinary field that incorporates chemistry, physics and mechanical engineering. You can usually find me around the lab prototyping electronics, machining, or drafting CAD models.
I worked in the financial industry for nine years before leaving to make SnapJet a reality. My specialty is software development and machine learning, but I've always loved tinkering on hardware and starting business ventures.
