Stream pictures from photo sharing sites
We reckon old-style photo frames are destined for the scrap heap, especially if the amazing Wi-Fi Digital Photo Frame is anything to go by. Because as well as displaying all the pics, vids and sounds trapped on your memory cards, this truly innovative rectangle communicates via Wi-Fi with Flickr
and other photo sharing sites such as Webshots
and Windows Live
It comes with a smart remote control
Impressed? You should be because the Wi-Fi Digital Photo Frame is set to revolutionise the way we view and display piccies around the home and office. Once you've set-up this sleek, idiot-proof device you'll be able to sync it into your photo-sharing site of choice and view uploaded pics, slideshows, video clips - the lot. And if you input a friend or relative's Flickr username you can view their piccy collection via your frame. Genius!
New uploaded images displayed automatically!
Better still, every time fellow Flickr fans upload new images, the Wi-Fi Digital Photo Frame displays them automatically. They could be in Australia, Timbuktu or just across the road. No subscription fee required. It's enough to make you yell cheese, smile, sausages and every other grin-inducing phrase you can think of.
Stereo speakers and controls
If you're worried that this is some poor quality gimmick, worry not - it's a gorgeously engineered bit of kit with a hi-res (800x600) display, multi-format card reader, addtional bluetooth connections, built-in stereo speakers, on-screen menu and smart remote control. What's more it can be wall mounted for additional show-off-factor. Single prints in old-style frames? How terribly 20th century.
Multi-format card reader, audio and PC connections
With fewer people bothering to get their shots printed, the WiFi Digital Photo Frame is a smart choice, particularly if you get bored of staring at the same pic every day. Yes, you could buy hundreds of regular photo frames and pester friends into continually courier-ing over their latest prints, but that would make about as much sense as not buying the WiFi Digital Photo Frame. So what are you waiting for? The future of frames is most definitely digital.
