Polaroid's Second Life

PolaroidThe Impossible Project669 may live again! Eventually...
An Austrian man named Florian Kaps has taken it upon himself to save instant film as an art form. He has recently taken out a lease on an old Polaroid factory in Holland and purchased the machines and with the backing of Ilford and in collaboration with Polaroid and many other experts in the feild of instant photograpy plans to come out with their first new line of instant film based on the vintage Polaroid emulsions within the year! Thank God! It will likely be more expensive than when Polaroid made it but at least it will be available. I think they will be starting with the SX-70 Time Zero emulsion first. I can't wait!
