Does the world need a 32-inch digital frame?

No, especially if its subjects have unsightly blemishes.

Smartparts OptiPix

There was a time, only a few months ago, when 15-inch screens were considered gargantuan for digital photo frames. That could soon be considered laughably puny if the likes of Smartparts OptiPix have their way.

The New Jersey company has unveiled a ridiculous 32-inch LCD (shown here) with a 1,366x768 resolution to highlight every wart of its subject. And as if that weren't enough, Gizmag says Smartparts is also trotting out a second high-definition frame that comes with a built-in one-touch printer to provide a hard copy on the spot.

The downside to all this, of course, is that we'll like see more of those life-size wedding portraits that some people are unfortunately fond of plastering above the fireplaces for all the world to see.
