FAQ

The System

  • What is the Wundershine system?

    The Wundershine system consists of smart picture frames, a mobile app and cardboard storage boxes. It is a complete solution for curating, showcasing and keeping your favorite pictures and art.

     

  • What are the benefits of the Wundershine system?

    The system makes it extremely easy to frame new pictures regularly. No need to take frames of the wall and mess around with rulers, calculators, paper cutters, metal clips, etc.

     

    Great photos finally get their moment in the sun. They will no longer be shared once and then lost between thousands of flat pictures, screenshots and blurry selfies on different devices and forgotten online services.

     

    The standardized system will make prints fit perfectly. All it takes is loading a sheet at the top of the frame and the advanced mechatronics system will make sure that the photo is printed (in the case of the Makerframe), and transported automatically to the exact correct position behind the passe-partout (mount).

     

    When you are out and about, and you take a great digital photo, or one is shared with you, and you feel that it deserves to be featured on your wall at home, it will no longer stay a fading intention. All you need to do at that time is add it to your Wundershine queue with a few taps on the app and it will be available later when you are ready to frame.

     

    With a Wundershine system, you can keep your wall décor fresh like a feed. Imagine walking around your home (re) framing new pictures in seconds, having fun experimenting, reliving moments, creating a special gallery for your dinner guests or showing off the masterpiece that you made with the latest creative app.

     

    While curating your Wundershine queue and framing different pictures over time, you automatically create a valuable, tangible archive with just your favorite images. Even when something unfortunate happens to your prints, you can revert to your full image queue history that is saved as a backup in the Wundershine system by default.

     

  • What is wrong with alternative solutions?

    A recent market survey revealed that peopleᅠhave an average of 6.3 items waiting to be framed. The need for picture framing is universal, but it can be frustrating and complicated. Most people frame much less than they would want.

     

    Framing a new picture in a traditional picture frame is a lot of work, especially with larger frames with passe-partout (mount). You need to plan a size for the print, the passe-partout and the frame, then you need to get a print and start removing metal clips, calculating, measuring, cutting, taping, avoiding mistakes, etc..

     

    If you use a home printer to get the print, we all know that it is always a pain to get the settings right with margins, quality, alignment, etc. Printer ink is messy and expensive, and in the end there is always one color that is running out.

     

    Bottom line: it takes ages.

     

    It is of course possible to order a complete professionally framed picture from a digital file, but that is costly, and it will be very difficult to use the frame for a new picture later.

     

    What about digital picture frames?

     

    Surely they can show fresh pictures easily, but the LCD displays are usually small or very expensive and they scream for attention too much. Most of them are made from plastic and they suck power just to show an image. Worst of all, they need a power cord. This sticks out like a sore thumb if you hang it on a wall, completely destroying its value as a decorative item.

     

  • How do I install the system?

    The frames can be hung on the wall using the metal wire on the back of the frames. There is no power cord to worry about. The setup procedure for the wireless networking of the makerframe will be simple and is work in progress.

     

  • Can I use the Wundershine system without a smartphone?

    Yes, but this is probably not optimal at launch time. Minimally, it will be possible to log in via your desktop and upload pictures to your Wundershine queue. We will upgrade the web app in the future so that it will also allow users to order prints online or edit the queue in various ways.

     

  • Is the design of the system final?

    No. In all likelihood there will be changes. We do expect them to be minor though.

     

  • Can I manage a system for someone else?

    Yes, this is possible. You can for example give a frame to a family member as a present and curate a separate queue for this user with fresh family pictures. The Wundershine app will allow for logging in with multiple accounts including alternative shipping addresses for blank sheets and online prints.

     

    For the Makerframe, we are working on remote print initiation. This means for example, that you can tell your mother over the phone to load a blank sheet in her Makerframe, and when she does, a new photo of her grandchildren is framed automatically.
