NFT Frames

Gadget Lab: Weekly Tech News from WIRED

Maybe youโ€™re intrigued by NFTs. (They can often be pretty fun.) Maybe youโ€™ve even felt the urge to buy a piece of digital art, only to give up once all the talk of wallets, blockchain transactions, gas fees, and digital ownership restrictions made the experience feel too daunting. And the NFT world is daunting! Especially for non-technical folks. Some companies are trying to make the acquisition process less onerous by selling NFT videos pre-installed in digital photo frames that you can buy, have shipped to you, and then display on your desk or wall next to your photos and other artworks. This week, Lauren Goode takes us into this world of pre-framed NFTs and the marketplaces that power them. She also tells us about the looping Steph Curry video currently brightening her kitchen counter. Show Notes Read Laurenโ€™s story about framed NFT art. Listen to our episode last year about WTF is an NFT. Hereโ€™s that Infinite Objects Elon Musk NFT if your stomach can take it. Recommendations Lauren recommends mineral sunscreen. Mike recommends the casual mobile game Holedown. Lauren Goode can be found on Twitter @LaurenGoode. Michael Calore is @snackfight. Bling the main hotline at @GadgetLab.
