Currently, I am building a digital photo frame for my parents back home. The purpose of this project is to be able to display photos from different parts of the globe because their children and nephews are spread very far apart! The special part about this frame is that it will allow select family members to upload photos to the picture frame from the internet. The digital photo frame will then automatically download those photos and show them.
Sometimes just sending photos over email or sharing them on the web does not allow people to casually keep up to date, since it requires them to be in front of a computer or digital device. Something that hangs on the wall that is in a passive environment can be a little more friendly and easy to manage. Not to mention it’s a great way to keep those extra special photos from collecting dust in the ol’ hard drive. 🙂
