California Startup Artkick Hits Kickstarter to Secure $50,000 For Digital Photo Frame LOOK


On Tuesday, California-based startup Artkick launched a Kickstarter an Internet-connected high definition display that redefines the digital photo frame, LOOK.

LOOK 4The LOOK supposedly builds on and improves the once-cumbersome digital photo frame with an easy-to-use, pixilation-free, large HD screen. It connects friends, family and interests by automatically displaying pictures from multiple sources, including photo sharing sites and social networks, all controlled through a set-it-and-forget-it simple app.

Art kick has also worked with Getty Images to provide access to more than 70 million professional photographs, including some of the most recognizable imagery of the 20th century and up-to-the minute pictures of worldwide sporting, entertainment and news events.

In addition, LOOK subscribers have access to the largest photo and art collection ever assembled for one device, with curated masterpieces from more than 4,000 museums, including The Louvre and Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Sheldon Laube, CEO at Artkick, stated:

“Posting pictures onto digital photo frames was too difficult and time-consuming. We focused on making the LOOK screen bigger and better. Users just take pictures and post them to social media sites and they magically appear on LOOK.”

LOOK 2Controlled from the app for iOS or Android, the LOOK automatically pulls photos from followed social media channels and photo sharing sites, providing a never-ending stream of photos to friends, family and fans. When new pictures are posted to popular networks like Facebook, Instagram, Flickr and Pinterest, they instantly appear on LOOK, as long as the user’s permission settings allow sharing. For example, LOOK users could show photos from a vacation during the day, a Monet painting during dinner, and then Getty Images photos from yesterday’s ball game at night.

LOOK measures 27 inches by 18 inches, weighs 12 pounds, efficiently runs on fewer than 50 watts of power, and mounts horizontally or vertically on a wall, or stands on a tabletop. It can be set to rotate photos and to power off and on at specific times.

The first 150 Kickstarter backers will receive a LOOK for the special price of $349. Additional backers will receive special Kickstarter pricing of $399. After the campaign, LOOK will retail for $499.

Since its launch, the campaign has raised nearly $40,000 thanks to 79 backers. It is set to close on July 2nd.
