The problem with tattoos is that unless you're inked with an April Fool's joke, you can't change them so easy according to your tastes, moods, or significant other's demands. Artwork though, you can swap that stuff out like your underwear. Without shelling out a ton of money or adding a new collection of nail holes to your wall with the help of Electric Objects' EO1 and every piece of art on the Internet.

EO1, a self-described computer made for art, gives art lovers and fickle decorators a means of displaying original works in their homes or offices without spending a dead fall foliage garbage bag of cash or sacrificing the quality of the work. Physically, EO1 is a 23", 1080p IPS display that sits on an included stand or hangs with wall mount hardware. The screen then connects to your home WiFi network and is ready to display any art you find on the Internet. This includes HD images, animations, video, and generative art, as well as your own photos and creations. Electric Objects has also compiled an Art Club of pieces made especially for them, available by subscription, and is working with museums and libraries to make those collections accessible for users to display on their EO1s.

EO1 cannot browse the web or send and receive emails. It won't broadcast alerts, feeds, or distractions. It was designed to blend into the background, to bring you passive, subtle, subconscious joy. Like a true piece of art. Or my cable box. Paired with an iOS or Android app EO1 users can manage a library of favorites and change their current curated Electric Objects display from anywhere.

The EO1 screen has a 50M:1 MEGA dynamic contrast ratio with 250 cd/m2 brightness and 5ms response time, and includes a 3D graphics accelerator with 4 shaders. It weighs 10 to 15 pounds. No, I have no idea why the weight is listed as a range. Maybe it increases when you upload Salvador Dali, angels of death, and other heavy stuff.
