We agree it's a very nice and thoughtful thing to have photos of loved ones displayed at one's desk, but sometimes we can't help but check our reflection in the picture frame from time to time. You know, just in case a bit of lunch got stuck between the teeth. Or a hair's out of place because it's windy. Inside. The Parrot Specchio Digital Picture Frame ($500), designed by French minimalist artist Martin Szekely, lets us all drop the charade. It's a digital picture frame and...a mirror! Yep, when you want some me time, just turn off the frame and it becomes a mirror. And when it's time to use the picture frame for, uh, pictures, you can wirelessly send images to it via your cell phone, camera, computer, or even from your favorite photo sharing website like Flickr.
