I'm fascinated by how many of the digital things in this world emulate things that are unique to the analog world. The latest gem I found, called Poladroid, is a desktop application for converting your photos into Polaroids. This isn't a new idea, there are tons of Photoshop actions to make your photos look like they were taken by Holgas or other similar cameras. The thing that made this incredible is the experience of using the application matches that of shooting an actual Polaroid. When you drag a photo to the little camera, it spits it out undeveloped and then slowly you see your image fade in over about 3 minutes.
