Cool Gadgets for Seniors who Love Photos

I’ve recently been spending some time in my childhood home – my mother’s house – and I am getting inspired to write on the website every single day. Today I want to talk about her passion – and probably your passion too – for photography. While walking around her house, I can count almost a hundred frames all filled with family – all her children and grandchildren. I am not exaggerating, there are hundreds of them. And yes, I am there in many of them too, me as a baby back in the hospital when I was born, me with my favorite doll, me riding my first tricycle, me with a cute hair braid, me and my daughter’s first picture.

I admit. I – along with my brothers and sister-in-laws – am the one to blame. We are the ones who keep sending the woman more pictures every day and maybe she feels like she “has to” frame them.

But who am I kidding?! My mother loves to receive these pictures. In fact, we need to have the trouble of actually print them because she doesn’t know how to take the digitalized ones and print them herself. But we understand her, no judgment here. For someone who just knows basic tech, it may be a bit complicated.

So if you are anything like my mother and you have a “Instagram-like” home filled with pictures and frames of all your children and their children growing up, we made a list of cool easy-to-use gadgets that may be interesting to you.

Cool Gadgets for Seniors who Love Photos

1. Big Picture Smartphone Magnification System

The Big Picture Smartphone Magnification System is a device that can make your screen 2X bigger. This is also a great product for seniors with low vision.

2. Aluratek LCD Digital Photo Frame

The Aluratek LCD Digital photo frame is very simple to use. All you have to do is to load an SD card full of family photos and set it up to watch the pictures from the SD card as many times you want, over and over. It’s a photo frame and it’s also some kind of album – what an awesome combo!

There are some more high-tech devices that you can access with Wi-Fi, as a remote control, so if you think that it would be better if someone else is the one setting up the Digital Photo Frame in distance because you are not as tech-savvy, it can be done as well. No hassle there. Once someone sets it up for you, they can send new pictures directly to the frame! I am sure you will appreciate being kept in the loop and finding new surprises.

3. Kodak Mini 2 HD Wireless Portable Mobile Instant Photo Printer

My mother believes that if pictures are printed, if she can touch them and put them into a frame, they will kind of last forever (funny thing that it’s more likely for them to last when they are digitalized on the computer). And she keeps complaining that she receives so many pictures from us (her grown-up kids who send her daily pictures of her grandchildren) but she doesn’t know how to print the best ones. Well… problem solved!

If you are anything like my mother and loves the feel of a “real” printed photograph, the Kodak Mini 2 HD Wireless Portable Mobile Instant Photo Printer will let you print those pictures and show them off to anyone and everyone.
