Whoever buys this is a tool.
It's not worth $300. It's hardly worth $100. I bought it here a while back. Get the $100 one on Amazon. It's much better for the price. It was about $80 when I bought it six years ago, but it's still better than this one. https://www.amazon.com/Hypnocube-Cube-Animated-Light-Sculpture/dp/B005BYFLHC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1530833109&sr=8-4&keywords=led+cube
Is it just me, or does anyone else think that, with an HDMI interface, this might make a great 8 channel VU meter display for multi-channel sound systems? :) Too pricey for me to even try at this point, though. It really Needs A Purpose.
this thing looks like it's about $30 of parts, if that. Crazy people are paying $300 for it..
I'm heartbroken :( just received my cube today and put it together, and only the back two rows (out of 8) are lighting up. I suspect the board might be broken because all the LED strips are connected properly.
Update: I replaced the first LED strip that wasn't functioning (back to front, left to right) with one of the two spares I received, and that fixed my issue! Now they all light up.

I just can't justify $300 for a lightshow, even though it is a very cool concept. I'll probably just end up taping glowsticks to my dog, like usual...
Is it just me or did the price go up $200?

This historically has been on Massdrop for $299.99. We have never sold it anywhere near $100. I think that you might be thinking of this product.

Yes You can still get these on ebay extremely cheap!
I have received it and came back for comment. This thing is expansive as hell, but it worth every single penny. After assembled it, it looks as beautiful as the advertisement photo. Everyone deserved to have 1 piece of this art and I hope the price could drop to like $49.99 for everyone to have it. The whole thing is very well designed include the package, which you will receive a small size package, and after assembled the actual thing is actually quite big. The acrylic cutting is very accurate and flawless (you must follow their step or else it wouldn't fit). Also it is great that it does give you some redundant led and case clip in case any piece is dead on arrival or lost.
Also for any electronic project the most painful thing would be troubleshooting. For my case, after plug in all LED I thought it may need some troubleshooting, but no, it just worked flawlessly. The only bad thing is when during assemble, one of the base of led bend badly (on arrival, not done by me), and I have to bend it back and prey it not break. Otherwise it is very simple to assemble. The most painful process is to tear the protective sticker on acrylic case, and to screw in the screws on very edge of case, the screw is non-magnetic and it is PITA to aim it at some depth in the case where the clip can drop easily before screw in.

Expensive or Expansive? There is a difference don't ya know. imho, I think you meant Expensive, but the thought of expanding it to a 2x2 or 4x4 array opens up an whole new set of possibilities. but at 200 a pop it's a non starter for me
ToddBailey
Expensive. Forgive me my lord for the typo . $299 a pop is very tough to swallow I fully agree this. I just hope that it can be more affordable too, or else if nobody buy it (because of too expensive), it will be gone forever.
Didn't this previously drop for around $260? I thought it was a mite expensive at that price... $300 seems like a lot.
kevinhb
I did saw that drop very long time ago, but on that time I ran out of money. Well it is sad and we need to get over it. I have bought one at this price, I received it and even at this price it worth every single penny.
Just how popular did anyone actually become after buying one of these?

Thumbs up to you as well, Sir! Great picture by the way!

Wish I could take credit for it--just something I picked up along the way. All the best!
please do a drop for the 16x16x16 version! https://lookingglassfactory.com/product/16x16x16-l3d-cube/#

Here's a 12x12x12, but you've got to build it. https://8x8x8item.com/collections/shop/products/auracube-12x12x12-diy-soldering-kit-3d-animation-and-audio-spectrum-display It's $321. I wouldn't want to attempt this thing though.

And how am I supposed to pay for that? My looks, perhaps 😂
I would really want one. But wont have money until late this month. D:
wow nice :3
This his hugely expensive. Kits on Ebay go for less than $50 shipped. See for yourself.

It'd be bad practice for me to link to another site directly, but if I type in led cube on ebay, the second result is $25 plus just $1.50 to post.
EDIT: Actually I see now that you're right. Full colour ones seem to go for $150, but that's still half of what you're paying here.

The ones you are talking about are crap.
I had no idea this thing was so pricey when I hit request previously. I can't justify $300.
zofodraziw
It is really dumb that the request doesn't show the drop price from last time.
Man if this was around $100, I would jump all over it. $300 is just too much money.
This is a lot of money for something you can do for yourself.
mario.d.garcia.mg
sure you can...
Before I commit, this will be a fully functioning cube and will not require any additional hardware, correct?
Cdcurtis
correct. you just need to assemble it. http://cubetube.org/docs/
This is a real cool tech toy but that price is way too much. It could be justified if it was capable of more than what it is at this stage.
Seems amazing, exept for the price....
Anybody have any good resources for hacking the Particle that drives these to trigger off external inputs/triggers? I love the cube, I hate the web interface for programming it and complete lack of documentation on interfacing with the particle board...
What is it?
One of my more pointless purchases but it's still going to be mine! Yes of course you can buy all the bits cheaper etc, but I honestly couldn't be less bothered. You know what else you could build yourself for less? Sodding anything. Anything!!That's nothing to boast about knowing! Christ Almighty
invisiblekid
Except these gadgets come with ready-made kits which can be easily assembled in an afternoon. You are delusional.
Bombenhagel
Stfu. I’ll spend my money how I want. You spend yours how you want.
I just took the plunge and joined the drop. I don't really need one of these but I wanted one since the first I've seen it. I've looked around and can't find a better all around 8x8x8 LED cube for the price as far as the way it looks and you get all the parts and components in one kit. I can't stand to wait to receive it.
Bagman57
Same here. There are cheaper ones out there but not with full-color LEDs like this. Can't wait to play around with it.
This is the first step toward true 3D displays. Im talking like the screens are measured in 3 dimensions instead of 2, Ex. 1920x1080 vs 1920x1080x720. To me, this is simply a very primitive 3D TV with really big, sparse, pixels and a low pixel count. One day we will have true 3D TV's i just know it.
I'm offended that price isnt 255.99
Anybody have any luck with their cubes adding on external circuitry via the Particle board inputs?
would you have the larger version ?
My friend and I were looking at this drop and thought to ourselves, we could build an LED cube for much cheaper than this. However, pricing it out the LEDs alone would cost something along the order of $200! Not to mention custom PCBs, sensors, etc. At $256.99, this seems like a great price to me.

Fair is fair. Thanks for the information. But assembling a cube as nice as this one from scratch would still mean a lot of custom plastic and PCB. Not worth the effort for me, I'd rather jump into software.

Cost and ease of construction of acrylic cube is even less of a factor than with the LEDs. There are many pre-made acrylic housings and cases available as well.
The board would be great to break out into a larger display inside of an unused fireplace or behind a bar. I wish this weren't geared toward hipster doofusses. Why not just post the schematics for older cheap doofusses like me?
May i know whats this for ?

It's a toy, or a tool depending on your POV. Good for projects, programming and electronics fooling around.
