NEWS – Last year, we told you about Samsung’s The Frame TV that could disguise itself by displaying art when you weren’t watching TV. That was a great idea, but the multi-thousand dollar price meant you could only afford one per room. 😉 With the Gesture-Controlled Digital Art Frame from Meural, you can also display your choice of digital art in a static or changing display at a fraction of the cost of the TV. Meural says their “TrueArt technology brings every brushstroke to life and renders images lifelike and textured.”
The Meural frame measures about 30″ x 20″ x 1.6″ (varies with frame design) and has a 27” 1080p IPS display with anti-glare technology for a 1920 x 1080 full-HD resolution and 300 cd/m2 brightness. You can hang the frame either vertically or horizontally. You can use it with your own images, or display any of the 100 included images. For $39.95 annually, a Meural membership gives you access to 30,000+ premium images.
The Meural frame has a 1.8 GHz Quad Core ARM Cortex-A17 with 1GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB of storage. It has 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity plus Bluetooth. Control the frame with simple, intuitive controls using the Meural website, app (Android or iOS), or with the wave of your hand.
Meural offers the digital frame in the Leonora style with black or white painted poplar or in the Winslow style with walnut molding. The Meural Gesture Controlled Digital Art Frame is $595 in either Leonora color or $695 in the Winslow walnut from The Grommet.
