Self-Updating Picture Frame Features Instagram Feeds In Real-Time

Design group D2M has created an digital picture frame that self-updates in real-time, to feature photos from your Instagram feed.

Called ‘Instacube’, the 600x600 LCD touchscreen device lets users log-in and connect to the web, 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.

The device also has two other buttons: a power button to switch it on or off, and a feed-switching button to toggle between hashtags or types of feeds.

Instacube has a rechargeable lithium battery so that users can move it wherever they like, 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.”
