High Tech Present of the year

This year was a bit of a high tech Christmas for the Taylor family. We got Bj's mom her a digital frame loaded with a ton of pictures. High tech. For Justin, Bj's brother, we got a digital key chain. Whoo hoo super high tech. What did I get? This.Straight from 1991, the "digital" frame for the 90's. Let's take a closer look shall we? REVOLUTIONARY. Yup. With push/pull action.I mean come on-it's interactive! This is what we used to get excited about. Now let's take a look inside.Brimming with 90's technology! So what comes next you ask? Load the pictures. No more than 40, but no less than 12.Next slide the drawer closed. What a nice frame.Now slide the drawer open. See what is happening! The bottom photo is peeking through!Now this is revolutionary technology!! Now close the drawer, and presto chango...a new picture all ready for your viewing pleasure.Sadly there is one major design flaw which probably prevented this amazing technology from really catching on. Photo crunching.So are you just SO jealous of my high tech present? Well you can get your VERY OWN here. But a warning to you, although my frame was in the dusty section of our local camera store thus VERY cheap, you have to pay a lot more for an "undusty" version.

oh, this is funny. though it got me thinking about its 80s predecessor, the view-finder. wouldn't it be cool to get digital pictures printed onto viewfinder disks??
