Moto has announced a new Moto Mod for its Z lineup of smartphones. And it’s literally a Polaroid for your smartphone.

Called the Polaroid Insta-Share Printer Mod, it allows users to snap the Mod to the back of any Moto Z smartphone, hit the physical shutter button on the Mod, and immediately take a photo of what’s in front of them through the built-in camera app. Afterward, your picture will print out on a 2×3 smudge-proof picture which uses Zink Zero-Ink paper. You can also print photos from Instagram, Facebook, or Google Photos if you wish.

This is cool and all and will add some nostalgia to your smartphone, but you’ll need to consider the price of this Mod: $199. The most expensive Polaroid camera you can buy is just $99, so you’ll really need to consider whether this Mod will actually add value to your phone. It’s also worth noting the Mod will only work with Moto Z phones and nothing else. Therefore, you’ll also be locked into the Moto Mod ecosystem.

But hey, who am I to tell you what to do with your money? If you have your heart already set on this Mod, you can pick it up beginning this week at Verizon and other retailers.
