2. Really Big 16x16x16 Cubes are undergoing final QA this week and will start shipping out in a few days, with the Assembled Really Big Cubes shipping out a few days after that. Thanks to all Really Big Cube backers who have sustained months of delay, slaked only by the sweet nectar of a complimentary 8x8x8 Cube. You Big Cube backers are crazy and we love you.
3. Volumetrics in the news, "Looking Glass Founders See Their L3D Cube As A New Type Of Display". Video here! http://techcrunch.com/2015/08/11/l3d-cube-video/
...with hints of the glorious future that awaits.
4. CubeTube is buzzing with activity but is simultaneously getting filled with a bunch of apps without 3d previews and, in some cases, apps which simply don't work. To fix this, we'd like to propose both a short-term and medium-term solution.
Short-term (i.e., in the next few weeks): Alex and I will shoot high quality video of all working apps and post these videos for all users, so everyone can see what the apps do before loading on their Cubes. As for apps that are non-functional or 100% derivative, we will ask the users if we can delete those apps.
Medium-term (i.e., in the next few months): we will work out a star-based ranking system and a genealogy of apps, to give credit where credit is due.
What do you think? Please post your thoughts on the short-term and medium-term proposals in the comments here or in CubeTalk!
To the future!
-Shawn, Alex, and team Looking Glass
