Submission + - The epic story of Polaroid's SX-70 (

harrymcc writes: "In 1972, Polaroid introduced an instant camera called the SX-70. Four decades later, the amount of innovation and creativity they crammed into it remains dazzling. If the point of technology, as Arthur C. Clarke said, is to be indistinguishable from magic, I can't think of a greater gadget than the SX-70. And the parallels between Polaroid founder Edwin Land and Steve Jobs are remarkable."
