Instacube: A living canvas for your Instagram photos

SHARE

For those of you who would like to take pictures of your breakfast, lunch, dinner (and probably other things as well), frame it and show it to your friends wherever you go, there’s the Instacube. According to Wired, “It’s got all the basics—wireless, touchscreen, flash memory—packaged up to look like the [Instagram] app. In fact, the package is a big part of the attraction. If digital photo frames seem like they’re not “in” anymore, it may be because so many are unattractive with a poor user interface. Instacube aims to change that with a slick, straight-from-Instagram interface and a stylish box.”

Although it’s only a Kickstarter project right now, it aims to become a reality by March 2013. The project just started today, and already has over 800 backers and over $90,000 raised towards its goal. “Liberating Instagram photos from your smart device, Instacube feeds your favorite images wirelessly at 3x the size,” the project page says. The first 1,000 backers will receive an Instacube for $100, and everyone else can get one for $150. What you get is a display that matches the 600-square-pixels size of Instagram photos and toggles through different feeds, based on friends or hashtags. The frame runs an Android operating system, so developers will be able to play around with it too.
