Arduino Instant Camera even possible? Answered

Is it possible to combine an arduino board with a digital camera and a thermal printer to make an instant camera? I do know that an electronic instant camera was made earlier this year by Niklas Roy (from France), but his takes about 3 minutes to print a picture from the printer. If an arduino can make making an instant camera easier than making one from scratch, could it be done?

Sounds like the limiting feature is the printer speed.
Polaroid made a camera with color prints years ago !


You won't know until somebody tries.

If no one has ever tried it, then I guess i still wont be the first!
