Parrot Specchio digital photo frame hosts plenty of technology
You might take Parrot rather casually when it comes to the various portable gizmos that they roll out, but this time round it looks as though they have a clear cut winner on their hands. The Parrot Specchio was designed by Martin Szekely, and this stylish digital photo frame is not short on innovation and technology, featuring a whole bunch of ways to transfer and share pictures and albums. Just in case the name Martin Szekely fails to ring a bell, he is a contemporary well-known French artist who is widely acknowledged worldwide as a “master of minimalism”, and already has pieces in the permanent collections of the world’s major museums. This latest digital photo frame brings a timeless mirror into the picture (pun intended) that can more or less fit into just about any home and complement the overall ambiance. What makes the Parrot Specchio so special, you ask? Well, read on after the jump to find out.
When turned off the Parrot Specchio functions as an ordinary mirror. When you turn it on, it automatically becomes a work of art, displaying all your favorite digital memories in a classy manner. It is able to receive photos via a variety of methods, and we will take a look at the wireless ways first. You can choose from Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or NFC (Near Field Communication), but if you think that going wired is the right thing to do (or if you do not happen to own a Bluetooth-capable handset), then there is always the mini-USB port and SD memory card reader for you to transfer all those special digital moments over to the Specchio in a seamless manner.
The Parrot Specchio frame is able to hold up to 1,500 digital pictures when it arrives in stores sometime this November, accompanied by a recommended retail price of $500. Image courtesy of Engadget.
