Parrot Specchio: A Digital Photo Frame That Looks Good Without a Picture

Finally. A digital picture frame that we could actually see in our home. For starters, it mimics the mirror integrated TV's and even the "> Reflect iPod case we have seen before, definitely a good thing. It's not just a pretty face though, it has some useful tech to give it some substance.

A quick look at the spec sheet shows Wi-Fi, bluetooth and NFC or near field communication. Wi-Fi links your online Flickr or Picasa account to the frame so that you can pull your images from the cloud, but it is the bluetooth and NFC that make this frame stand out from the rest. Instead of having to move photos onto the frame via USB or a memory card, if you have an NFC equipped device such as a cell phone, all you have to do is touch your phone to the frame and the picture moves across. No wires, no fuss.

It's like very expensive magic. The frame runs for $499 here.
