eStarling Wi-Fi RSS Enabled LCD Frame

Finally somebody has made something I've been looking for a long time: The wifi/web-enabled LCD picture frame.

It's called the eStarling Wi-Fi Gmail / Flickr Enabled LCD Frame. Here's how it works:

  1. Hang the sucker in your house (needs to have WIFI)
  2. Using some software, configure it to
    • Receive email (strange as that may sound)
    • Receive an RSS newsfeed (Flickr, the photo album site, is a popular one)
  3. Then send it photos and, voila, it appears in the frame.

Pretty cool, huh?

I'm native New Yorker living in Colorado whose family can't pry themselves away from the East.  I tell them about all my outdoor adventures.  While Marni (my wife) and I have a great online photo album, our parents are still very lo-tech.  They'd rather see it without turning on the computer.

This thing sounds like a perfect compromise.  Just post the pics online and they get to see it in the frame.  The frame even has a way to cycle through the pictures too.

If you're interested in buying one, here is a handy dandy link to the website that sells it:
