Purikura is a Japanese trend among local girls who like to enter photo booths in arcades, take pictures of themselves and edit them. After that, the final result gets printed and eventually sticked onto the cover of a book belonging to a schoolgirl. Sharp brings this trend and tech to mobile phones, allowing the girls to edit their pics on the go.
Purikura is now available on Sharp’s concept phone and since everyone’s got one in Japan, or even more handsets, this will prove to be quite a hot initiative. The girls will also be able to use a “shared art space”, where they can be creative about their own pictures.
