The only consideration on this gadget’s appeal is because millennials are into selfies and social media, and does outrageous things that may not be normal to regular Jane and John does.

What makes the HP sprocket photo printer special?
It is not only its size but also the features and capabilities that come into a minute frame. It can deliver fast photo printing direct from the smartphone. And aside from being portable, it can integrate easily with Facebook, Instagram and Flickr. There are no connecting cables because it operates from smartphones and tablets using Bluetooth. Probably, the only downside is the resulting prints are limited in size, compressed into 2x3 prints.
The fact that the HP sprocket photo printer does not need ink is definitely an added bonus to users. It works using a special paper (HP Zink photo paper), eliminating the need for bulky ink or toner cartridges.

It works similarly with the paper used by Polaroid cameras, that delivers printed photos right out of the camera.
