Every once in a while, I come across a gadget that absolutely makes me swoon. Let me preface this by saying that I know that no one actually needs the object of my affection. I know it’s expensive. I’ve actually paid less the price of this electronic frame ($595 USD) for a car.

It’s called Meural and this so-called “smart art” frame allows you to upload your own artwork or choose from a library of images. It initially comes with 100 works of art included.

According to Meural the images look just like you’re viewing a canvas hanging on your wall. You can even see texture.  The 19.2 x 1.6 x 29.5-inch frames can be displayed horizontally or vertically and are made from hardwood and come in black, white, or brown.

You can change the art by using a wave of your hand, a smartphone app or your Amazon Echo speaker, or by using the Web Interface.

You also have the option of a Meurels subscription for $39.95 a year that gives you access to tens of thousands of artworks with new art added every week. This includes classic artwork and works by newer artists who are paid for having their works be part of the subscription. You can put together playlists of art much in the way you’d put together a music playlist on a service like Amazon Music or iTunes.

Even if you aren’t ready to sign up for a membership, can click here to browse the collection and sign up for their art newsletter.

Meural is available at select retailers across the country, including many Lowe’s and Best Buy stores. You can click here to check out the company’s site for more on the product and where to purchase it.

You can also click here to check it out on Amazon.  We are an Amazon associate site, so if you decide you need an incredibly expensive frame and purchase it through the link, we’ll get a few pennies on the sale or from anything else you buy after clicking from the link.

Although, I imagine that, like me, you’ll just daydream about how cool it would be to have a wall of these.
