Pity the digital photo frame: technology that was supposed to bring our vacation and wedding pictures to magical life on the mantel turned out to be something we guiltily regift to naive grandparents. (Don't lie, you know you've done it.) Still, there must be a non-cheesy way to liberate digital images from the invisible depths of our iPhoto libraries, somehow. The Parrot from NoDesign might just be it: a discreet frame that sucks in photos wirelessly and displays them in a glowing digital homage to a photographer's lightbox.
Given that an LCD TV is basically a large digital photo frame with added video-processing power, this innovation from LG has taken a surprising while. And LG's new 47-inch "Digital Photo TV" goes one stage further than just acting as a dumb photo display: it manages to show photos while it's actually in standby mode.
