Aura, a line of high-design smart frames that helps people get photos off their phones and into their homes, has released two new digital frame collections, the Mason and Sawyer. The two collections, offered at an array of luxury, are available for purchase on the Aura Frames website, Amazon, and in select stores.
Available at $199 and $299 respectively, the Mason and Sawyer Collections boast new innovative technologies including hi-resolution, crisp clear screens that automatically adjust brightness and a touchbar that allows you to easily scroll through photos. Released in time for the holidays, the gift-buying feature offers a clever way to add photos remotely to the frame before it arrives to your loved ones doorstep.
Specific collection highlights include:
The Mason Collection is seemingly carved from stone with a freestanding design that is perfectly balanced and refreshingly simple. Currently available in Graphite, the frame features a granular finish with a subtle sheen reminiscent of its namesake.
This high design collection meets natural materials in a contemporary take on the classic frame. The Sawyer is offered in two colors: Mica, which has undertones of champagne and rose shimmer across the surface of the metallic frame and is accentuated by its satin finish, and Shale, a textured surface, finished in a deep midnight blue for a matte effect.
In addition to these collections, Aura Frames will share two software updates to the app:
Alexa and Google Integration
Connecting the Aura frame with these popular voice assistants allows you to control your frame and view various photos with commands to see the next picture, switch between multiple Aura Frames and learn where and when the photo was taken. E.g. “Alexa, show me photos from my trip to Hawaii.”
AI-powered smart photo curation
Facial recognition software via the Aura app identifies your family and close friends—sending photos to your digital picture frame automatically. It saves you time on adding photos. It’s like putting photo selection in autopilot. Users also have the option to select which photos to add.
In addition to the Mason and Sawyer frames, Aura has just launched Aura Analog, a premium monthly photo print subscription service.
