Stay on the diet with a fridge photo frame

What better deterrant could there be than a slide show of your fatty self?

Thumbs Up UK

The preponderance of digital photo frames has been a standard rant in this space, and for good reason. Not only are they overproduced and overmarketed in every iteration, from keychains to cubes , but they can also be found in practically every size imaginable.

Yet here's one that may prove to be a good idea despite its original pedestrian concept: a tiny digital magnet for the refrigerator door. Rather than having a virtually useless display all of 2.4 inches and 320 x 240 resolution, we've got a far more practical application. If you're trying to lose weight, you can post photos of your most unflattering depictions as a deterrant to the munches. Or, if you're an optimist, you can program a slide show to track your progress as you shrink down to a manageable size.

And if that doesn't keep you from ripping the door off its hinges, there's always the " Fridge Alert " as a second line of defense.
