There are plenty of digital picture frames on the market, most of which totally suck, purchasable for about $30 from Walgreens. You upload family photos or anything else you might like to see, displaying them proudly in your home or at the office. The idea is sweet, but the hardware used for these products is anything but premium.
Finally, a Kickstarter has been started online, which brings high-grade hardware along with high-grade works of art right to your home for you and your family to enjoy.
Electric Objects is a project out of New York, NY, with a goal of $25,000 to get this hardware onto the market. At the time of this writing, they have smashed that goal, reaching nearly $700,000 in funding.
So what makes Electric Objects different? Well, first off, the device is powered by a 1GHz dual-core A9 processor with 1GB of RAM, 3G graphics accelerator, and 2GB of flash memory. The display, which is the most important component, is a 23″ 1080p IPS display with built-in anti-glare technology. The goal is to have a digital picture frame that produces stunning works of art on your wall, while also making the frame itself look good. The displays are powered with WiFi connectivity, which will allow you to curate your artwork with a mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
If you are interested in getting your very own Electric Objects picture frame, they start at $299 for either a Black or White model. The prices go up from there, topping out at $5,000 for a business pack, which includes five displays.
