Stock Status

I am swamped right now leading up to a month long bike trip I will be doing in Japan, so I’m suspending Finished 4Cube USB sales (since those require a lot of my time to build) until I get back in May. We’re also temporarily out of 8Square PICs, though that will be rectified much sooner. Retail 4Cubes and 4Cube kits are unaffected and we have those in stock and ready to ship.

    Hit there!
    Just got a cube I ordered from thinkgeek as a gift. I couldn’t help but “make sure it works right” and the results were great.

    I have looked at your site since and am really looking forward to the 8 cube being released. I’m getting married in June and have dropped the hint to the wife-to-be that it would make a great gift.

    Please keep me updated if possible.

      Hi Rob,

      I’m not sure the 8cube will be available in time for you wedding, unfortunately. But: if your fiancee wants to contact me we might be able to arrange something…

    Your products are great! As an EE graduate from 1971, I have tried to make variations of what you have produced over the years, with no success (that’s one reason I am in real estate!). I’m very eager to buy one or two of the (assembled) 8x8x8 pieces. Have a good trip, travel safe!

  • Terry Hawkins · May 13, 2012 at 11:05 pm ·

    Please let me know when the 8x8x8 will be available.

    Thank you, Terry

    • Gene · May 14, 2012 at 7:08 pm ·

      No problem, I’ll let you know!

  • Sam · May 27, 2012 at 6:51 am ·

    I have assembled EVERY product you all have and have had a blast doing it! ME WANT 8X CUBE!!!! ME WANT!!!! My 4x Cube is sooooo lonely! 🙁

  • Joseph Thanhauser · June 6, 2012 at 12:38 pm ·

    Gene – How are the 8×8 assembled units coming? Very eager to get my paws on a few of them!

    • Gene · June 6, 2012 at 10:06 pm ·

      Hey Joseph,
      Are you asking about the 8Square (8×8) or the 8Cube (8x8x8)? I’ve given up on finding a good replacement for the 8Square frame, but if there’s demand I can take another look. I’m guessing you probably mean the 8Cube though – Chris is working on expanding and polishing the visuals for it, particularly the audio response stuff. Case is still kind of up in the air too. But we plan on making a push to finish it soon, so one way or another it should be available in a couple months.

  • Zach Montognese · June 6, 2012 at 8:34 pm ·

    Hey Gene do you think you could shoot me an E-mail or comment here when I could buy an 8x8x8 cube? I’d like to buy a custom one from you prior to production if possible. Let me know! Thanks!

    • Gene · June 6, 2012 at 9:59 pm ·

      Hey Zack,
      Current ETA on the 8Cube is end of summer. Custom pre-production one is a possibility; I’ll email you for further details.

  • Jonathan Bozanich · August 1, 2012 at 5:23 pm ·

    Hello Gene, I have been admiring your work and pictures of your product. Congrats, its quite amazing. I am looking for a “WOW” factor in my Nightclub in Niagara Falls. Would you be willing to discuss doing a center peice for my ceiling over my dancefloor? Looking forward to your response.


    • Gene · August 1, 2012 at 11:26 pm ·

      Hey Jonathan,

      Absolutely, I’d be happy to discuss what we might be able to create for your place. I’ll send you an email.

  • Rock · October 19, 2012 at 9:44 pm ·

    Gene, I hope the 8x8x8 cube is coming along well. Do you have an anticipated release date for the assembled version? I’m looking forward to ordering one. Your cubes are to lava lamps as iPods are to 8-track tape decks! –Rock

    • Gene · October 22, 2012 at 7:59 pm ·

      Thanks Rock! Progress is being made on the 8Cube, though it’s slower (always slower!) than I’d like. I’m afraid to give a date… been wrong too many times… but shouldn’t be too much longer.

  • Kathy S · August 11, 2013 at 2:00 pm ·

    Hi Gene, I can’t wait to get my hands on an assembled 8x8x8 cube. Is there a way to get on a wait list for one of these babies? Thanks, kat

    • Gene · August 11, 2013 at 2:02 pm ·

      Hi Kathy,
      We don’t have a wait list, but I am keeping a list of people to notify when it becomes available; I’ll put you on it.

    Just checking up on things, any chance you’d be able to give us an ETA on the availability of the 8Cube? Looking forward to getting one!

    • Gene · July 21, 2014 at 5:08 pm ·

      Ah, yes, the ever-popular question 🙂

      I’m yet to be right on these estimates… but we are actively working on finishing the 8Cube up and the current goal is sometime this fall.

      I’ll let you know when it’s available! We’re looking at around $850 for a kit and $1400 for a finished unit.

  • Andrew · October 3, 2015 at 11:13 pm ·

    Is the 8 cube project dead? I certainly hope not….

    • Gene · October 5, 2015 at 1:52 pm ·

      Hi Andrew,

      Definitely not dead! Admittedly it was a bit comatose for a while, but we’re now making a concerted push to make it available by the end of the year.

  • frank · November 1, 2015 at 8:49 am ·
