Homescreen

2013 · Picture frame, app, service · Unreleased

Homescreen was a connected picture frame network I co-created to bring photos out of the phone and into the home. We hacked, 3D-printed, and assembled a dozen Android-based hardware prototypes and deployed them into our extended families’ homes. I designed and built the device's display app and an iPhone app for capturing and sharing photos within the private Homescreen network.
