Konnect Labs Launches #Cube™: A Digital Living Photo Canvas Enabling People to Share and View Their Most Important Moments

Wireless Device Streams & Displays Real-Time Social Media Photos & Videos

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2014) - Konnect Labs is pleased to announce the launch of #Cube™, an attractive & easy-to-use wireless touch display which automatically downloads photos and videos from the Internet. Whether one's passion is great photo-art, real-time pictures and videos of family and friends as posted on social media, visual updates from a favorite sports team, or gorgeous snapshots of enticing meals from favorite chefs, #Cube can customize this experience for any user. #Cube is the next generation of the Kickstarter sensation, Instacube.

For consumers, #Cube™ is the simple way to view, share, and archive their most important moments and connect people with visual content that never goes stale. #Cube enables friends and families to stay connected and to share seamlessly their real-time experiences anytime.

Featuring a large 8" square LCD touch screen, the photo canvas enables the socially connected to free their viewing experience from the smaller confines of a smart device. The real-time and wireless #Cube™ requires zero attention to deliver an automatic and continuous stream of photos and video clips on a display three times the size of the average smart phone, enabling users to enjoy and display real-time social network images from friends, family, photographers, and favorite celebrities. The touch-screen enables pinch and swipe gestures to browse content, view comments of photos or follow users. A dedicated heart-shaped "favorite" button on the device allows the user to tag and save special photos and videos to create a "Liked Library" and to let the other person know their photo was "liked." Additionally, #Cube™ is portable with its own built-in rechargeable battery and Wi-Fi support.

#Cube™ can be enjoyed by all ages. For parents and grandparents, it is easily programmable to follow their loved ones even though they may be thousands of miles away. For photo art enthusiasts, it serves as a gateway to billions of photos on the internet. For the young and socially connected, #Cube is a unique way to be surprised by photos and videos of friends doing what they do. 

For businesses, #Cube™ can be served as an eye-catching display in restaurants, bars, hotels, and shops. Tied into social application feeds, the device enables customers to engage with the business brand.

"We feel that #Cube™ represents the new language of social media where everything and anything has a hashtag and is highly visual. #Cube™ is more than just a hardware product, it's about enabling people to connect, engage, enjoy and discover new passions through rich content, whether it's photos, videos or audio," stated Larry Tsai, CEO of Konnect Labs.

The product name change from Instacube to #Cube™ is also a reflection of Konnect Lab's vision to continually update the product software to expand and support other social media apps and services, in addition to the hugely popular Instagram. The current iteration of #Cube is capable of streaming feeds from Instagram with additional social media feeds planned on a rolling schedule for release. The smart and updateable #Cube™ includes free wireless software updates that enable new features & application support, giving the user a unique viewing experience unlike any other device.

"We are extremely excited to relaunch as #Cube™. We have an exciting roadmap of new hardware and software features planned and we want to ensure our brand identity reflects this mission to bring the user unlimited enjoyment of this immensely appealing device," noted Tsai.

#Cube™ is available in Black, White, or Classic, with a list price of $149.99. It is currently available online on Amazon, eBay, and the #Cube site hashtagcube.com/#cube. Additionally #Cube is available at select retail locations in the San Francisco Bay Area and greater Chicago.

Konnect Labs will also be an exhibitor with #Cube™ at CES 2015 from January 6-9 at Booth 74470.
