2018 Latest Photo Booth Trends
After attending another amazing instalment of the worlds largest Photo Booth Expo PBX Photobooth Finder is pleased to report back with what we predict to be the latest photo booth trends and toys thanks to the industries best innovators and influencer's.
Top 3 Photo Booth Trends
Virtual Reality (VR) Booth
Virtual Reality is not new but the application to allow users to have their photo taken whilst inside this fully immersive environment is. Imagine you're 40,000 leagues under the sea or flying in a wing suit over the Himalaya's. Of course most of us will never ever get to do these things for real but now with VR technology we can and we can capture that experience on "film". 360 degree images are able to be view on computers or mobile devices including being able to reimmerse yourself via a VR headset.
As the price of VR tech comes down so does the cost to be able to experience this and up until now this "photo booth" experience was limited to big corporate activations this style of photo booth will be trending at a wedding or birthday part near you soon.

360 Degree Photo Booth
Remember The Matrix? That iconic scene with Keanu Reeves virtually frozen in time? Now you're starting to get the picture on what 360 Photo Booth is all about. A multiple camera rig or "Array" is set up to capture a full 360 degree moment in time. That image is then able to be captured, stored and shared. Like with the VR booth the technology required used to be out of reach for the layman due to the costs but with innovative advancements this too is now entering the public domain.
A great product to offer for Corporates but also anyone looking to add that wow factor to their event especially if they have a little extra cash to splash.

Not as high tech as our first two trends but this new toy is nonetheless going to be just as trendy. The Ring Roamer is a light weight shell with a built in studio grade ring light designed to take studio quality pictures in low light areas. It's powered by a small battery pack and the photo booth functionality comes courtesy of any ipad based app. Its portability and ease at which guests can interact with it even in the darkest of nightclubs means that this little toy is set to light up social media.
For operators this could make a great add on sale or stand alone product and bridges the gap between roving photographer and photo booth very nicely.
