Wifi Digital Picture Frame

Kodak just announced a new product, to be available in March, that has the potential to be really interesting. They announced new Wifi enabled digital picture frames that can apparently auto-update from an online source. This means that once you set it up for someone who is perhaps “techno-challenged,” you can update the pictures from afar.

For the only somewhat-challenged, they can perhaps pick and choose from among images in the online gallery themselves, but you can still add to the list of images from afar. I can imagine my folks having one of these, and my updating pictures from such-and-such an Anthony event moments after it happens, and them being able to see the pictures in their bedroom or wherever they put the thing. And with five kids, four kids-in-law, and three grandkids, I can imagine updates coming in from all corners.

It can also do audio and video, so perhaps I can even upload video.

I'm sure it needs to be tethered to an outlet, but the Wifi makes it otherwise really portable.

It remains to be seen how good of a product Kodak can really make... I hold out only marginal hope. I guess we'll see, in March.

One comment so far...

This has definite parent potential!
