Instacube is the living canvas for your Instagram and Facebook photos. Finally liberated from your smart devices, Instacube passively streams the candids of your friends, family and favorite people to you throughout the day. Photos are streamed in real-time, wirelessly at three times the size of the average smart phone.
Instacube was designed by John Whaley of D2M | Design to Matter in the heart of Silicon Valley. Instacube was successfully crowdfunded on September 21st, 2012, raising over $600,000 on Kickstarter. The team of engineers and designers here as well in our D2M office in Hong Kong are supporting the ramp up to manufacturing and distribution of Instacube.
Instagrams at Full Resolution
Full Size Photos! Instagrams are 600×600 pixels and our display is optimized for square photos of this size. You’ll be streaming your favorite feeds all day in the way that the iPhonographers in your life intended you to see them- big, beautiful and in real-time!
Runs on Android
Who doesn’t love an open door policy? We’re focusing our efforts on optimizing the Instagram experience on Instacube first, but as well roll out facebook integration and our partnership with SmartThings, we know it’s only the beginning of what lies ahead for Instacube. We are listening to your suggestions and hope to announce new partnerships and features throughout 2013!
Connects to Wi-Fi
Hosting an Event? Throwing a party? Taking Instacube to a picnic in the park? Never fear, it doesn’t need to be connected to power or Ethernet- Instacube runs on a rechargeable Li batter and connects via wifi. When you’re out of internet range, Instacube reverts to streaming your “liked” photo library.
How it works
We believe in intuitive and simple UI at D2M and have designed Instucube with those principals in mind. Three Step Set-up to Use Instacube for the First time:
- Plug it in via wall outlet for USB
- Connect to wifi
- Log in to Instagram and/or Facebook & Enjoy!
Three Simple Buttons
- The Circle Button powers instacube
- The Grid Button allows you to toggle between single photo & tile mode, as well as between Instagram and Facebook feeds.
- The heart button allows you to “like” the photos you love
The touch-screen allows for increased functionality, “back side of the photo” viewing and well as the ability to bypass the photos you don’t want to see.
