If you’re an Instagram addict, then you might want to take note of the Instacube, the latest project on Kickstarter. This cubed digital picture frame will stream your Instagram photos live over WiFi, and from there you can favourite images via buttons on top of the devices.
Here’s how it works:
Log into your Instagram account using the touch screen keyboard, and bam! You’re up and running. Photos from your Instagram feed will start pushing to Instagram immediately. Use the Toggle button at the top of Instacube to switch between viewing your own photos, the photos of your friends, and the “popular” feed.
Here are the tech specs:
• ARM Processor
• 4GB Internal Flash Memory
• 256MB RAM
• 7.5″ Square Frame
• 6.5″ Square LCD Active Viewing & Touch Area
• 600×600 Screen Resolution
• Built-in 802.11b/g/n WiFi
• Capacitive Touch Screen Display
• Android OS
The device runs on Android OS, so if that makes you want to throw up in your mouth a little then you should ignore this project. But if you love Instagram, this is definitely a cool looking device that should bring the photo-sharing app to another level.
We’ve seen the Instagram ‘Socialmatic’ camera concept before, but that is nothing like this. Just last week, Instagram released 3.0, an update that introduced UI tweaks and a new photo map view.
Is the Instacube something you’d be interesting is having around the house? At $150, it does seem pretty pricey, and the expected launch isn’t until 2013 Q2. So you won’t have it in your hands anytime soon, but the creators D2M seem to have everything in place.
