If you are like me and you take lots of photographs, but rarely print them out, then perhaps you need some incentive. Thumbtiles are 7×7 inch transparent squares that easily allow for photos to be inserted or removed. They are currently seeking funds on Kickstarter. A $40 pledge will get you 4 Thumbtiles, assuming they meet their goal of $10,000 in the next 28 days.
Thumbtiles want to bring the photo party to our walls. 7″ square, frameless, refined through dozens of iterations, the unframe. Like freshening up the wallpaper on our devices, they are built to be changed easily (held tight by the slimmest, strongest magnets around) and mounted clean (with removable wall dots).
It’s a simple idea. A sleek photo holder that can be refreshed in an instant. The conceptual tweak’s the thing though. Making the jump from wall photos as permanent fixtures to wall photos more like a photostream, opens it up and makes things fun again.
Remix and match, put them up, take them down. Like organic wall art: ever evolving, always fresh, and ready for a just a taste of the iPhone’s photo riches. – Thumbtiles
