This photo frame is easy to build, but it does take a bit of know-how.
Mainly, you should feel comfortable soldering wires and mounting the screen and Raspberry Pi to a board or other object.
The end result is a digital picture frame that’s actually not terrible…in fact, it may even be something to lust after.
Aura was founded by Abdur Chowdhury, the Summize founder who became Twitter’s Chief Scientist, and CTO Eric Jensen.
As long as the device is connected to a Wi Fi network or equipped with a USB 3G modem it can receive a constant stream of new content from all of your devices, like phones and cameras, through the cloud.
The frame comes with its own mobile application for Android and i OS so all of your devices can stream content directly to it.
Secondly, there is a motion detector, built using a PIR sensor, which only turns the monitor on when somebody walks by.
As you can see above, I built a photo frame that has a few interesting parts.
For one, the software which runs the photo frame, which I explore below, keeps the photos fresh from Instagram and Flickr.
With frames designed to celebrate important family holidays – Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day - we hope Photo Mambo makes it easier to stay well-connected with grandparents, siblings, cousins, and close friends.
Photo Mambo is also a terrific way to keep working parents connected with the kids during the workday.
