NFTs are infiltrating just about every facet of our life, whether we want them to or not. What began as a curiosity has swiftly grown to include networking behemoth Netgear and its Meural connected smart frame.
Regardless of your feelings about NFTs, firms like Netgear are capitalizing on them by incorporating them into existing products like the Meural Frame. With a mechanism to exhibit these pieces of “art,” these commodities can also be used as decorations for things other than Twitter profiles.
While the Meural was originally designed to display images, Netgear just announced that beginning in January, it will begin beta testing the connection between the Meural and the MetaMask bitcoin wallet. This partnership is what allows you to safely store and upload NFTs to Meural.
Pretend for a moment that you have no idea what an NFT is and don’t want to learn. Slideshows and photographs from your phone can still be viewed locally or remotely on the Meural. It will also have access to the world’s largest streaming art and photography library.
Works by ancient and modern artists, as well as branded content, will be included in this library. This service can be purchased on a monthly or annual basis for $8.95 and $69.95, respectively. Fortunately, you can exchange photos with the Meural using either the specific app or the built-in MicroSD card port.
The Meural Frames which are a display for NFTs comes in a range of sizes, starting at 13.5 x 7.5 inches for a desk and going up to 16 x 24 and 19 x 29 inches for wall-mounted choices. None of the frames, however, offer a display resolution higher than 1080p, which is disappointing in a world where screens like Samsung’s The Frame are available.
The smallest photo frame costs $299.95, while the larger two cost $399.95 and 599.95, respectively. All of these versions are available in a variety of hues on Amazon or Netgear, with varying levels of availability.
