The HP Sprocket (2nd edition) is a diminutive photo printer designed for the notoriously printer-phobic millennial market. The Sprocket lets you print 2x3-inch photos straight from an iOS or Android smartphone. It’s remarkably simple to use, and with a range of stickers and filters – including some AR-enabled ones – any member of the Snapchat generation will find it a hoot.
The downside? We found its print quality to be lacking at times, and it isn’t especially cheap to run. So, is the HP Sprocket a perfect Christmas gift? Or a ghost of technology past?
