Parrot DIA by Nodesign: Translucent Digital Photo Frame

Parrot DIA by Nodesign is a wireless digital photo frame with a disintegrated LCD: the LCD panel has been disengaged from the backlight unit with fascinating results. Here’s what Parrot says about this “unique technology”:

You will notice the frame’s originality straightaway, with its screen and light arranged in two separate places.

A LCD panel is naturally translucent, but you’d never know because a purely opaque backlight unit blocks the back. But, when the two are separated, like it is in the Parrot DIA, the translucent effect comes alive.

A “digital Ektachrome picture” is how Parrot describes the effect, which I really dig.
