PhotoGlow Picture Frames: A Brilliant Idea

PhotoGlow Logo

PhotoGlow is not another version of the digital photo frame (DPF), it’s an old idea made new by a fellow named Ed Sinofsky who’s got a Ph.D. from the Optical Science Center at the University of Arizona.

The old idea was to put fluorescent light bulbs behind a picture which made for uneven lighting and spotty scene; the new idea by Sinofsky is to use a fiber-optic cylindrical light distributor (the “Lightstic”) to uniformly and efficiently light a flat plate of any size.

Sinofsky is also the founder of CardioFocus, a company utilizing photonic energy for the treatment of cardiovascular disorders; his Lightstic is widely used in various medical procedures.

Unlike commercial displays, the PhotoGlow is only 1″ thick, uses a super-thin power cord, and draws an average of only 15 watts while in use.
