Mixture It really made it super easy to turn your photos into removable stickable wall tiles. You can order it directly from your phone to be shipped anywhere for free.
Now the Tel Aviv-based company has upped the fun by another notch DaydreamBrings the magic of generative AI to custom framed art.
If you are looking for quality artwork and materials, Daydream is not for you. But if you’re looking for an easy, affordable way to brighten up your walls with a dreamy DIY image, you may find this one-of-a-kind experience addictive.
Type any descriptive text, and within seconds you’ll see four samples of artwork in each of the six styles – oil painting, digital art, abstract painting, pencil drawing, watercolor, and one-line art.
To experience the service, I walked into the first image that came to mind: “a series of colored marbles.”
Powered by award winning DALL-E A system from the American company OpenAI popped up 24 possible permutations of consecutive marble images on my screen.
After selecting my favorite sample, he showed me how it would look in different frames. I chose my desired frame and size, entered my details and that was it.
It took about five minutes from start to finish, though I could have easily wasted half my day writing scripts to see how DALL-E could display them.
Baby elephants taking a bath? Sunflowers fall on Mars? Bears do tai chi? Still life with eggplant and peaches? everything is possible.
“Why do people decorate their walls, as they have been doing since humans first lived in caves? After helping millions of clients create walls they love, we know the answer is a desire for self-expression,” says Mixtiles co-founder Etan Levitt. .
“Instead of rummaging through catalogs to find a piece of art that speaks to you, Daydream literally lets you create a masterpiece in your own words that reflects your thoughts, dreams, and emotions.”
Founded in 2016 by Levit with David Katz, Mixtiles now sells over 10 million photo tiles annually.
The OpenAI partnership made perfect sense. DALL-E is one of the most popular generative AI tools on the Internet, with more than three million users creating four million text-to-art images per day.
“Integrating DALL-E with Mixtiles’ seamless design process opens up users to easily create AI-generated images that reflect their distinct tastes and style in the real world,” said Peter Wellender, Vice President of Products and Partnerships at OpenAI.
“We couldn’t be happier when we put the art of AI into people’s hands and homes.”
Pricing depends on size, frame, and other optional features. It ranges from about $14 for a 21 by 21 cm (about 8 inch square) to about $100 for a 50 by 50 cm (about 20 inch square). You can’t beat this budget for custom framed artwork.
My order, which was shipped to Israel from Las Vegas, arrived at my door a week after I placed the order.
How long will it stick to the wall? Will the paper it’s printed on start to fade? Time will tell. Meanwhile, I am thoroughly enjoying the artwork I dreamed up myself.
