Skyla's frame lets you scan in physical photographs

Skyla, manufactured by storage firm LiteOn, has a built-in scanner that lets pictures measuring up to 4 x 6in be run through it and digitised. The frame then converts these into digital images which are displayed, in colour, on the 8in screen.

The frame can store up to 200 4 x 6in images, but if you choose to scan in smaller, 3 x 5in prints then about 400 pictures can be shown.

If you’ve already gone entirely digital, the frame also has two USB ports through which you can feed images from a Flash drive. The frame can even be used for music and video.

The Skyla frame will be displayed in stores across the US this month for around $220 (£146/€173). A UK launch date or price hasn’t shown up yet.
