Fine art in your living room.Posted
I've been keeping my eye on the Meural Canvas from Netgear and recently had the chance to get one. My first impression was that the box was big. Previously, any frame I had gotten, was a picture frame. This most decidedly is not just a picture from. Once I opened the box, you could see that the Canvas filled almost the entire box. The Canvas itself, well, it has some heft to it. I finished the unboxing where I found all the tools to power the Meural as well as mount it on the wall. The first thing the the Mueral wants you to grab the app from your respective app store, I grabbed the Android one and went to town logging onto the service This is where I hit my one and only snag. It looks like you are creating a Meural specific login, where in reality, you are creating a Netgear login. I already have one, but I've forgotten my login info, so I had to reset my password. After that, you go thru a pretty simple pairing procedure where you first join the Meural's network and then pair it to your home network It pretty much just worked. There was a short How-To that the Mueral asks you to do, but after that you are off to the races. If you want to ge the real wow factor, you need to get the Membership (from what I've read, about 60% of the sub goes back to original art creators). The first pictures that I saw, I would have to say was breathtaking. It was a painting of the prairie at night. The crispness of the art, the professional look of the frame. It makes me excited to have this art within my house. I'm also experiencing an appreciation of art that I never had before. While I did get this as a Netgear first look program, I would have no hesitation in buying one or more of the Meural's frames. Is it weird that this is a piece of technology that makes me feel like I'm living in the future?

The canvas is absolutely beautiful. I love being able to choose images that complement the rest of the room or fit my current mood. This is such a versatile piece especially with a membership. I spent quite a while exploring all sorts of galleries and styles of art, favoriting, and adding to my own categorized galleries. There is so much more than just traditional paintings as well which I was pleasantly surprised by. Being able to move it from room to room without worrying about the rest of the aesthetic is so nice. I can put it where ever I want and have it look how ever I want, always keeping my bachelorette pad fresh. I find waving my hand to change the image quite easy but I prefer using the app because I chose to place it sitting on the mantel above a sofa chair (don't judge me for my chair placement, the fireplace is not usable :) ). I like that you can preview images and it will stay on the canvas for a minute so you can decide if you like it or not. Learning about the art I've chosen is nice. It makes me feel more in touch with the art rather than it being just some object hanging on the wall. I did find set up to be a bit of a challenge but once I figured out what went wrong it was easy. You have to connect your device to the Meurals WiFi signal and then log in to the app. My trouble was caused because my WiFi auto paired while I was trying to sync with the canvas and it interrupted the process. SO, I would highly recommend during setup you make sure your current WiFi is not set to automatically pair with your phone or computer. I am not completely satisfied with the app and was going to doc a star but apps are always updating and being changed so I am hopeful it will improve down the line. That being said, I love being able to create my own playlists of art although it's a bit clunky especially if you are uploading your own images. I think it's very cool that you can set a timer for the images so you always get to see new art. Adjusting the brightness and putting the canvas to sleep from your device is a nice feature as well. All in all the screen quality is stunning, the art work selection is breathtaking. @@@@@@@@ There are even moving images!! @@@@@@@ I would just like to see the app updated with a few minor adjustments.
