Press release:

Parrot, a provider of wireless peripherals for mobile phones, has announced the launch of a new digital photo frame: Parrot Specchio by Martin Szekely, which is unique, attractive and offers the latest technology.

Martin Szekely, a contemporary French artist, has designed a timeless framed mirror, combining talent and expertise.

As the lights, shadows and reflections play off its surface, the Parrot Specchio frame by Martin Szekely becomes a mirror when it is turned off. Like a precious jewel, its beauty is created from a reflection, in this case, that of a mirror. It’s all about what you can see: being seen and seeing yourself, but always in a low-key way. In the blink of an eye, the mirror becomes a screen for projecting your memories, like a stream of emotions. With just a few words written on it in lipstick, this framed mirror takes on a second life and puts yours in the spotlight!

The modern-day Polaroid

By opting for this modern-day Polaroid, you are choosing to bring to life and share all your moments using a quite extraordinary object. This frame offers multiple connections that are totally reliable (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, NFC – Near Field Communication, mini-USB port and SD card reader) so that when a special moment is captured, it can be framed immediately. If you slide your NFC mobile phone against the back of the Parrot Specchio frame by Martin Szekely, the photograph is downloaded straight away and displayed on the screen of the digital photo frame.

Thanks to its Wi-Fi connection and email address link, the Parrot Specchio frame by Martin Szekely can automatically receive any pictures that are sent to you by your friends or family, as well as those that are uploaded onto community sites (such as Picassa, Flickr, Fotolog etc.). In other words, you can see the contents of your family and friends’ shared folders directly from the comfort of your sofa. So your virtual community can invite themselves into your living room!

But it’s much more than a device for sharing photos, as it also has a functional and organisational role. You can use it for articles scanned from the press, original ads, recipes for oriental dishes, to-do lists for the weekend; in fact, for any source of information or picture which helps to make your daily life easier and decorate the inside of your home. You can store up to 1,500 pictures in it and as much practical information you want to share among friends.

The Parrot Specchio digital photo frame by Martin Szekely will be available at a recommended retail price of £300. It will be available to purchase via www.parrotshopping.com
