      Since we haven't yet received the new surveys for updating the addresses, I guess they missed their april 5th initial shipments prediction. The only thing that really bothers me on this project is the poor communication skills that D2M demonstrated throughout the years. I can be appreciative of management troubles, missed deadlines and a few other problems that can happen in the development of a product such as the Instacube but the lack of respect shown in the lack of communication really bothers me. D2M got more than 600,000$ from backers, they should show a hint of respect and empathy towards them.

      I was interviewed in the New York Times about you guys on how you started the tarnish of crowd-funding and now we have other sites and services to do our crowd-funding.

      So great for you for finally getting this done but we all deserve refunds and a the product in my opinion. We really do.

      How do I know if my address is updated before you shipped?

      Also, It's been too long since I backed this, I have no idea if it's a good address. I backed this back in's now 2014 and 13 months past your original delivery date for March 2013.

      Please respond to me publicly about this. You'll be doing a great service to the 3,434 backers on this project and the $621,049 we raised for you...

      You can send an email to with the following info:
      1) Reward Level
      2) Name

      5) Preferred Instacube Color
      And we will add these to our shipping database.

      Best regards,

      Instacube Team

      And now there's even another kickstarter campaign for an Instacube-like device:

      They're estimating delivery in May 2014. Think Instacube might possibly deliver before them? It did only fund 1.5 years earlier, after all.

    17. Missing_small

      Creator Bryan on February 22

      @Kathryn I have asked for one, and was basically told "eventually" So, who knows, the refund is probably as ethereal as the instacube: Some people apparently have gotten it, but most are ignored. One person earlier last year basically said "Be vocal enough, you'll get your refund"

    18. Missing_small

      Creator Kathryn Worland on February 22

      Does anyone have any details on how to get a refund? It was going to be a belated Christmas present and now is just a family joke.

      Creator Kirpa Singh Gulati on February 16

      You guys, the beta testers seem to be happy with their stuff. Why not freeze in and ship out the same to the rest and we'll be happy enough with the software updates that you send out OTA, since it's obvious you're not willing to refund anyones money at all, this is the next best thing...give us SOMETHING to show already!!

      Sorry - that last post was to answer Kris's questions.

    25. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Tom Ryan on February 8

      They all shipped with the default "Polaroid" scheme - black top with rainbow, then gray bottom. The black is matte and the gray is a glossy.

      I have to say the latest software update which just came last night improved the software. Finally the slideshow timing works just as I want and I think the contrast/brightness controls are improved too (early version made almost no difference to display). Now that I've tweaked the settings a bit, the colors pop a lot more - even without the final hardware that D2M says will arrive with the final units. Right now, this is absolutely something I'd be willing to show off (vs 1st gen software was more of a novelty).

      Creator Patrick Monnier on February 8

      I had a look to @jenndoula Instagram pictures and comments about beta instacube.
      I' m afraid, maybe we will never got something, how can they send an so bugy unit to beta tester!

      By the time this thing ships, will Instagram even be a thing? I've given up on this project.

      Creator gryphonent on January 27

      Sure Al. All of this and so much more. Once Instagram drops its vaporware status that is and ships out more than those beta cubes that have been making the rounds since the project went live on Kickstarter.

      will this device do videos with sound? support vine?

      Creator Robin Gruyters on January 17

      I can't be bothered anymore. This due to so much has changed since they announced it. (Instagram acquired by Facebook, Video support, new services like Snapchat, Exposure, etc.)

      I would like a refund. Only need to find out how.

    31. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Danny Olson on January 16

      Dear D2M, thank you for the continued (somewhat) timely updates! It goes a long way to keep us informed as much as you can. It makes the wait more bearable! Keep it up!

      Creator Brian on January 16

      I hope they expand use from just Instagram to local sharing, Google +, and Facebook. I've started using Google + more now since all my photos instantly upload through my Android phone or tablet.

      Creator James E. on January 14

      Yeah...if you can update us on the latest update so that we can all be updated on the status on the updates...that would be great.

    35. Me.small

      Creator Andy on January 13

      What is it with the radio silence? Why don't you put an update out you've build some units and got them out to beta testers surely thats worth a mention? Everyone gets nervous when things go quite, is it that things are going badly and you don't like to talk about it?

    36. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Jenn Shane Whitaker on January 8

      My first beta unit didn't work so I was sent a second one. I still cannot access it in my home and have now only once been able to access it while out and about. I have three young boys: lugging that box around to try and get it to work is no small task! Check out my Instagram @jenndoula to see the most recent photos I posted. Can't login to Instagram, the menus all fall off the screen, rendering them unreadable and not accessible. Did I really get TWO lemon units?!?!

      Creator KRIS on January 5

      Wow, I've totally stop visiting here, even with the updates.. But...

      Thank you Beta Testers. You give us hope that D2M is actually willing to manufacture these.

      Just a few questions to fellow beta testers.

      - Are the Beta Unit visually look / feel different than what has been pictured during the campaign? Is the casing Glossy or Flat or Matt?

      - Are the Beta Unit for you to keep or are do they have to be shipped back to D2M.

      Thanks fellow backers, good to see you beta tester get your hands on a physical unit. :)

      Creator Andy on January 2

      It's good to hear people have units I'm their hands! I am surprised we have had no updates to mention the from D2M hope everyone else gets theirs soon.

      I think having a dribble feed and 500px would be very cool

    40. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Brian on December 31

      I hope this device ships and I also hope SmartThings can be integrated like was promised. That's the main reason I bought this. I don't use Instagram. I use Google + for photos. I mainly wanted it for a control center for SmartThings. I was able to get a free Android tablet that I will use so I'm not sure how useful this will actually be but I'd at least like to get what I paid for.

      Fix your router. If you're able to connect the coffeeshop, the issue is not the instacube it's your home network.

    44. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Jenn Shane Whitaker on December 24

      Got my new unit yesterday! Still couldn't connect to my home wifi, but I took it out to a local coffee shop and was finally able to connect to the unsecured wifi, log on to Instagram, and had a constant stream of photos from everyone I follow! Going to try to connect at home again--if I can't connect at home, it's not much use to me, as I am a stay-at-home mom and will pretty much only have it running at home.

      Can anyone confirm what type of wireless radio is in the unit? 802.11g-only or 802.11n?
