Vintage instant cameras made from recyclable materials. The simple fold out camera for analog snapshots, made entirely from recycled paper and cardboard. No electronics – some paper, a pair of lenses and a cartridge for instant mini photos. Environmentally friendly – it uses less material than traditional instant cameras. The camera body, the shutter and aperture are made of thick paper and laminated cardboard.
Using this camera is like being transported to another time, when bellows cameras were a common sight. Matching its vintage style with Fujifilm’s modern, high-ISO Instax film technology gives this toy-like throwback some serious real-world capabilities.
Consumer IoT startup on a mission to strengthen the bond between humans and their best friends – pets. The gadget has six devices at once: GPS and fitness trackers, health monitor, LED backlight, temperature sensor and vibration mode for training. All data is sent to the mobile application (iOS / Android). It allows you to integrate with various services, such as veterinary clinics and animal walkers. In the future, developers want to develop the functionality of the application, to join the service of the community of pet lovers.

FunLight is an innovative attraction for shopping malls and theme parks. Powerful projectors are used to broadcast images onto walls and the floor. Due to this, all players see the same image and can interact with the projections as a team. The game is controlled by body movements, which are tracked by special sensors inside the room.
In early October, the pilot launched in the Kiev shopping center Lavina Mall. The first game available to visitors is “The Citadel of Music”. By genre it is close to a quest room. Players need to find tips and solve puzzles, while creating their own music. According to the project creators, its main advantage is that within a single physical space you can create a set of completely different games for each target audience: families with children, teenagers, adult players.

Flasty does not hide that there are analogues of their product in the world. But there are few of them, and they were created only for printing with chocolate without the possibility of using other food materials.
