On Photojojo, a website that constantly seems to pull insanely cool ideas out of thin air and put them for sale, has come up with the ultimate toy for Instagrammers: a gizmo that lets you capture your old film negatives right into your smartphone.

Heart to sleeve transplant surgery is painful, but how else can you show everyone that you're totally in love with 35mm film?

Enter the Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner! You can now scan 35mm film directly to your smartphone. Show everyone on Instagram your analogue shootin' skills. Let all of Facebook see your passion for film.

No middleman, middlecables or cumbersome equipment here. It's simple: slide any smartphone into the scanner's snug mount, switch on the battery powered backlight, slip in your film and snap a pic of the negative.
