The Museum of the Moment

Polaroid Fotobar capitalizes on our nostalgia for snapshots we can hold


In the last decade, the world of print has gone digital, which for the most part has been fantastic. (Remember when you had to wait to see what your photos looked like?) But one thing we miss about the analog world is physical photographs. If you forgot, those were the things that went inside picture frames. At The Linq, the new Polaroid Fotobar combines the best of digital and analog by printing Polaroid versions of your digital photos while you wait (for $1 apiece.) The store also sells a variety of candy-colored frames in which to house your new collection. Above the shop is the Polaroid Museum, which displays some nifty specimens of pre-digital life, including an Andy Warhol installation and the camera that served as inspiration for the Instagram logo.
