Who wants a real Instagram camera?

Instagram's icon is pretty iconic, as app icons go, but wouldn't it be awesome if you could get a real camera that looked just like that? Antonio De Rosa thinks so, and he's asking the masses to help him make his dream a reality.

He's started a campaign on Indiegogo (sorta like KickStarter) seeking $50,000 to produce a real, working digital camera based on the Instagram icon. Socialmatic, as the camera will be called, will boast a 4:3 touchscreen, interoperability with Instagram's iPhone and Android App, and even a real Polaroid style printer. Sounds pretty awesome, doesn't it? The printed pictures even have your nickname, a QR code, and some sticky-note style goo on the back for easy display.

On the downside, it doesn't look particularly ergonomic:

If you'd like to own such a fine device, you've got 47 days left (as of right now) to give De Rosa a hand in raising that $50,000. So far he's only managed to get $1,215 pledged, but with a little help, amazing things can happen... Oh, and you'll get a discount on the camera if you pony up a little now.
