Here's an interesting little video detailing the history of Polaroid. What's most remarkable about the clip though is the classic footage of Polaroid founder Edwin Land seemingly predicting a picture-sharing device not unlike the iPhone.

The video was created to promote a new book entitled "Instant: The Story of Polaroid" by Christopher Bonnanos.

You can find out more info on the book, which went on sale this month, here.
