The Instacube is the latest effort to make more money from Instagram, the extremely popular picture sharing application for iOS and Android. Basically, Instacube is a digital photo frame that shows pictures from your instagram feed. Cool, right? Well, no. I simply can’t imagine somebody owning this and not getting savage beatings for being such a hipster, I don’t condone this in any way, but my point still stands.
Instead of making fun of hipsters, it’s probably a good time to tell you about some of the features of Instacube. Firstly, it has a touchscreen display that allows you to swipe through photos. You can also use the physical buttons on the top of the device. It runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery, which allows you to display your images wherever you are. The display has a resolution of 600×600, which may seem low but considering the maximum resolution for Instagram is 612×612 anyway, it’s understandable.
If you want to reserve an Instacube, pledge $99-$149 over on kickstarter.com to help the project reach it’s $250,000 funding goal, it’s already half way there, having only being launched yesterday. Instacube is pretty hot right now, so hipsters, get it before it’s cool.
