If you recently tried to buy the Hypnosquare you probably noticed the exorbitant shipping charge and backed out. Turns out it was charging shipping twice (just the Square, other items weren’t affected.) It’s fixed now – for the record, all domestic US orders are a flat $10 shipping, and international orders a flat $35. If you see anything else, let me know! (Thanks Paul!)
The manufactured 8Square – which we decided to call “Hypnosquare” – is now available on our store. They look quite nice! The lacquered wood case is much nicer than the Ikea shadowboxes that we were using for the kits; I’m going to see if we can’t use the same case for the currently-naked kits too.
These are functionally equivalent to the “basic” kit – they don’t have USB, but do keep the switches on the back for playback control. And just like the retail 4Cube, the UART header and interface are there so if you want to hack it to do your own displays you can.
