Shiny Gadget of the Month: The Meural WiFi Photo Frame

By September 23, 2020News

The digital photo frame, many of us have had one or still do have one. The concept is good, you have a frame that can show a single image or rotate through a slide show, but as technology has advanced the task of saving photos to these frames seems arduous. We are so used to having everything at our fingertips and being completely digital that using physical media to transfer photos is inconvenient. However, Meural is here to change that.

The Meural WiFi Photo Frame is designed to be the perfect new accessory for your home or office. It has a large display that can adapt seamlessly to portrait or landscape depending on how it is positioned and will automatically adjust to the room’s brightness like a cell phone screen would. The best feature though is that it is a connected device so you can simply link your smartphone up with the frame to share photos for display. You can even create photo playlists and set them for different times of day too.

If you have a family member who has a Meural like a grandparent, you can share photos directly with them on their Meural, so they can be instantly connected with your family. Family and friends can all easily be invited to a shared album so you can all share experiences too.

Sharing your own photos isn’t the only thing this gadget can do. There is also a professional art collection of over 30,000 images that you can choose from to display. This does come at an annual fee, but is a really unique idea that certainly adds another dimension to the usefulness of the product.

All in all, Meural takes the digital photo frame and updates it to modern standards. For those of us who are looking to add something new to our homes during this stay at home period in our lives this could be perfect. While the price is a little steep, coming in at $299.95, it could really be a nice way to keep things fresh for your home office. The ability to create playlists for different times of day would always give you something new to look at.
