Kodak unveils the Facebook Photo frame at CES 2010
Kodak have unveiled the Kodak Pulse, a nifty photo frame that wirelessly connects to the Internet and displays pics from Facebook or Kodak Gallery.
Of course, it’ll also display pics from an SD card like every other digital photo frame, but its social media features give it an extra dimension that lets it act as a window onto you and your mates’ social lives (though thinking of some of the pics of me on Facebook, I’m not sure my mates would want a window of my social life on their living room!)
In addition to Facebook, you can also email pics to the frame, which is perfect for sending camera phone pics directly to it.
Actually, this opens the Pulse (and your living room!) up to some pretty diabolical uses! Imagine if one of your friends got hold of the email address. Whatever photo they wanted to send would be instantly beamed directly into your living room for full and proud display. How many moons do you think you’d see?!
The Kodak Pulse is a cracking idea – the perfect blend of gadget and social media. With 800 x 600 resolution, the 7″ photo frame will be available on in April 2010 for $130, and is expected to ship worldwide.
