      Still waiting for my refund. Should we finally sue them? What is kickstarter doing to help us?

      Still never received the product, asked for a refund and was given the run around.

    3. Jeremy Krantz on January 5

      Still waiting on ANYTHING at this point. A refund, a device, a response. ANYTHING????

      D2M- I recently moved, do you need my new address in case you ever decide to ship me one of these? I anxiously await your reply. haha

      I like coming back to this Kickstarter campaign just to shayte and giggles. It never disappoints.

      Be careful what projects you back, people.

    6. Maximillian on December 1

      Just want my money back. I'd take a $20 at this point and it'd feel like a win.

    7. Steev Janssen on October 30

      I had two. Gave one away and just threw the other one out.

    8. Mike De Clercq on October 13, 2017

      So this story keeps dragging on. After 5 years no instacube, no refund and no communication from the developers. This is legal and ok with Kickstarter? After backing 5 projects, 3 failures I am totally done with Kickstarter.

      I've come to understand that Kickstarter is not a shop and is more like a venture capital. You might think that starting businesses would do their homework before asking for money. When it comes to technology most don't know what they are headed for. It is my understanding that some projects are much better presented than they are and promise to much.

      Have any Instacube/Cube owners been able to repurpose their device since firmware updates are no longer supported? Mine has been bricked for a couple of years now and I'd hate to just throw it away if it's hackable. Thanks.

      The software update took away the best feature which was search for #hashtags. You can no longer have a stream of sunsets going to your cube or pics of your fav team or anything. You can only view your stream. I can do that from my phone. This is now rendered pointless.

    11. Bear Cruz on July 31, 2017

      Have my unit but instagram has disabled all the good features. This is only good for displaying your stream. It cannot stream hashtags anymore :(

      33 months waiting for my refund since I requested it in September 2014.

    17. pellamac on May 29, 2017

      I can't believe that I still haven't got ANY (NADA) news from you. You are such liars and you take money from people who believe in you. I want my money back. NOW!

    18. Lino Palena on April 5, 2017

      I'm acting with italian lawyers for the refund, they're known to not be so kind, even if it will take time

    19. Markus Schroiff on January 22, 2017

      ... still waiting for my refund...

    20. Euwing Tham Tatt Wah on December 26, 2016

      Can someone create an online petition just so we can all sign and request for action from the authorities against Kickstarter and these jokers from Instacube?

    21. Euwing Tham Tatt Wah on December 26, 2016

      I don't understand why Kickstarter can't do anything about this. Because of this experience, I have stopped supporting Kickstarter. I need my refund NOW!

    22. Steev Janssen on December 23, 2016

      Call your credit card companies to file a dispute / charge back.

      My info says that the pledge was collected August 2012.
      I requested a refund September 2014.
      So, 27 months waiting for the refund.

      Still waiting on my refund for five units, 4 years and counting...How much longer do I have to wait to get my money back? Its not to late to do the right thing, REFUND!!! please.

      These cubes do exist. I saw one today at the Mission Ceviche food counter inside the Gansevoort Market in NYC. I have not received my cube. I asked for a refund several times and still have not received a refund. How did that little food counter get a cube while everyone on kickstarter is left hanging?

    28. Andrew O'Neal on October 11, 2016

      Still waiting on a refund or something to show for my 100 dollars.

    29. Josh Doehla on September 22, 2016

      I still have not received a refund as well.

    30. D2M | Design to Matter Creator on August 31, 2016

      Hi Kick no mo, check out the email I sent you - (gmail) - it should have some more information regarding the questions you were asking. Let me know if it helps at all.

    31. no refund on August 22, 2016

      Functions, like all off the functions of the instacube?? Being able to only see my own photos is super lame. I could buy a digital picture frame and have more functionality then your product.. What a joke.. Open it up, let us do with it what we want or this will just be another thing in the landfill..

    32. D2M | Design to Matter Creator on August 21, 2016

      To Kick No Mo,
      The Instacube should work with a software update - though the functions will change as a result of Instagram's rule change. Send email to if you are still having issues accessing your instagram account on your Cube.

    33. no refund on August 18, 2016

      FYI people still waiting. Instagram updated its terms of service and the instacube no longer works.

    34. Greg on August 16, 2016

      Just another refund request here that's been "on the list" for years now.

    35. Heinz Grünwald on August 9, 2016

      Waiting for my refund - any updates? What's going on?

    36. Markus Schroiff on June 23, 2016

      Waiting for years!

      Never ever received my devices or any refund!

    39. Patrick Kempf on June 13, 2016

      Update succeeded. But I only see my own images instead of my followers.

      Looks like the app was "fixed" but now I can only see the pics that I upload and not the people that I follow. Did I miss a steps or is this now how it is going to work?

    41. Patrick Kempf on June 2, 2016

      Apps created on or after Nov 17, 2015 can take advantage of Sandbox mode right away. Apps created before this date will only be able to use Sandbox mode after June 1, 2016, but can still start submitting for review. On June 1, 2016 any app that has not been reviewed and approved will be set to sandbox mode.

      How can we fix this? :(

      Rune, it is an error with Instagram plugins. I am now getting it too. Sounds like others with other apps are also experiencing the issue as well.

    43. Rune Sovndahl on June 2, 2016

      I got two, one of them
      Works, so far... For 2 days the second one give me a 403 error when logging in

    44. Chris C. on May 22, 2016

      Haven't received an update on my refund in 7 months. Emailed again 3 weeks ago, no response at all. Originally requested a refund in August of 2015 and was told I was "on the list". This is ridiculous for a project I backed almost 4 years ago.

      Still waiting on my refund for five units. How much longer do I have to wait to get my money back? Its been almost a year since your last update. Its not to late to do the right thing, REFUND!!! please.

      I know it says be respectful and considerate, but this is getting beyond a joke. Another refund request here, though given what everyone else is still saying here, let's assume it's the usual bull crap cut and paste response email you always send out. I think we've all waited long enough. If you can pay someone to sit there answering complaints, you can start refunding us our damn money. OUR money.

      Gregory Blum on March 20, 2016

      Yes, another refund request from me too. I received a response from your team to a direct email in early August indicating that refunds would be issued "according to available resources," and you'd let me know when you expect this to happen. Another nearly 9 months had elapsed (and about 3.5 years since I gave you my money in the first place) and still no refund, no reply, no Kickstarter update.

      I understand you can't refund money if the funds aren't there, but some regular proactive communication would go a long, long way to easing frustration and general negative feelings I'm sure a lot of backers still have.

      Thanks for reading.

    48. Marcus Puchalla on March 11, 2016

      Any news on my refund ?
