Digital photo frames with a twist
Aluratek gives the digital photo frame a little something extra: 256 MB flash memory that can be used to not only play photos, but also movies or MP3 files. You could have your very own little home movie running on the photo frame, or set the summer vacation photos to an appropriate soundtrack.
Aluratek promises video and audio of near HD quality and 1024x768 video resolution, which is pretty neat for a 10.5" photo frame. Image, music and video files can be directly downloaded from other devices or thumb drives onto the photo frame (or "digital lifestyle device", as they like to call it), and all sorts of settings like volume, zoom and other options are accessible through a remote control. Another way to think of it might be as of a very small TV, then?
Elsewhere in the photo frame world, Photojojo offers a 4-step tutorial on giving your favourite 7" x 5" photograph that Etch A Sketch look - the better to suit the Etch A Sketch that will double up as a photo frame. All you need is a photograph, an Etch A Sketch and a copy of Photoshop. Well, and a decent printer too.
