Fujifilm’s new special edition Instax Smart Link printer can do just that. This portable device hooks up to a smartphone app that can scan photos from your Switch. So you can print any snap with ease.

Here’s how it works

Save a screenshot to your Switch. Then open the sharing options and select Send to Smartphone.

The Switch will display two QR codes, which you can scan with the Instax app. Doing that will instantly transfer your screenshot to your phone.

From there, you can edit the photo: zoom in, change the orientation, or even adjust things like brightness.

Hit the print button, and the printer will spit out your photo in a matter of seconds, much like a Polaroid camera.

Your photo will take a few minutes to develop.
