Instacube: A Living Canvas for your Instagram Photos

Design group D2M has created a digital picture frame that self-updates, in real-time, to feature photos from your Instagram feed. Called ‘Instacube’, the 600 x 600mm LCD touchscreen device lets users log-in and connect to the web, allowing them to instantly display photos from people or hashtags they follow whenever they are posted. Users can ‘like’ the posted pictures by using the ‘heart’ button on the top of the device. It also has two other buttons: a power button and a feed-switching button to toggle between hashtags or types of feeds. With rechargeable lithium battery Instacube lets users place it  wherever they like, it runs on Android OS and has a 4GB flash memory.

“We think any current Instagram user will love our Instacube as a fun, new way to enjoy Instagram photos in the home, office or anywhere you’ve got a wireless connection, but it’s not just for consumers,” D2M wrote. “We believe that if you’re a business owner, then Instacube can also be a powerful and innovative way to communicate and interact with your customers. Imagine the brand building possibilities as your customers use your company’s product or service and post their experiences to the Instacubes in your stores.”
