FRAMED*

FRAMED* is “a platform for new art forms”. In essence it’s a 40″ IKEA RIBBA frame with a built-in screen and computer. It’s supports digital art in the form of still image, Flash, Processing, openFrameworks and Cinder, so there’s a lot of cool stuff that can be made for this baby.

The problem I have with it is the fact that it’s a 40″ LED display, which makes it essentially a large lamp. I would love to put something like this up on a wall someday, but not if it’s going to light up the room non-stop and needs the power drain of a Core i5 processor to make it all work.
