Instacube digital photo frame puts selfies on the shelfies

​After generating buzz with a Kickstarter campaign in 2012, the Instacube digital photo frame is finally coming to retail stores -- and Australia is getting the first look.

Thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity, the appropriately-bevelled digital photo frame displays a live stream of Instagram photos in real-time, meaning you can view your filtered selfies and photos of quinoa salad without having to pull out your phone. As a bonus, the screen displays images three times larger than you'd see on an average smartphone.

Photo comments can be viewed with the swipe of a finger, likes can be bestowed thanks to a dedicated heart button, and the device can be set up quickly with a power point and a Wi-Fi connection.

While the Instacube has been available through Kickstarter for some time, the device will now be available in Australian retail stores (thanks to a local distribution deal) for AU$219, with The Good Guys becoming the first retailer to stock the frame.
