UO + The Impossible Project

As some of you may or may not know, I work at UO (Urban Outfitters)

And last week the company was presented with this...

"When Polaroid ended production in 2008, The Impossible Project acquired
all the film production equipment in the last Polaroid
factory in the Netherlands. UO has partnered
with the Impossible Project to support their
mission to restart and reinvent Instant Film Photography"

"The Impossible Project came along and purchased Polaroid's Dutch factory - equipped with all of their machinery and equipment - with hopes of creating a new generation of Integral film (the type of film that makes iconic, white bordered instant photos). The Impossible Project will use new, efficient technologies to start production of a modern instant film that works with vintage and newer Polaroid instant cameras. In the meantime, the sales of this super limited edition run of 700 UO exclusive Camera Kits - carefully collected, hand-assembled and artfully packaged- will help fund the production of new film. Each kit contains one of the very last deadstock Original One600 Polaroid cameras in the world, pack of 779 film and battery. Perfect for any instant photography lover or collector, this is your chance to get one of the world's very last packs of Polaroid film. "
