Carbon fiber used to create the Infinity Cube is one of the most advanced materials ever made. Carbon fiber is often used on exotic cars or high performance jets because it is very strong yet lightweight. The process of creating carbon fiber is very complex and took many years of research and experimentation to perfect.
The Infinity Cube is more than just an interesting block of carbon fiber, it is a physical symbol of the very best that humans can create and a memento of the advancement we as humans have made in technology.
How the Infinity Cube is Made
Layers of carbon fiber fabric are stacked on top of each other until the desired thickness is achieved. The Infinity Cube requires over 70 layers to be 1.5" thick.
After all of the layers are in place the entire sheet is vacuum-sealed to prevent any air bubbles, then a clear resin is added to bond the layers together and turn the stack of carbon fiber fabric into a solid block. (Some manufacturers use different techniques; we use this process because it creates the best carbon fiber in terms of appearance.)
Our supplier makes carbon fiber from the absolute best materials available and uses a resin that is crystal clear. This ensures a final product that has the best possible aesthetic appearance and is completely free of voids or any other defects making it truly "luxury-grade".
The Infinity Cube is a solid block of 100% luxury-grade carbon fiber. It measures an impressive 1.5" x 1.5" x 1.5" (3.8 cm) and weighs 75 grams.
Each side of the Infinity Cube has an intricate pattern formed by tens of millions of carbon fiber strands. Each of these individual strands combine to create a cube that is almost infinitely complex and absolutely stunning in appearance.
The Infinity Cube displays several different patterns that appear only on the sides and bottom of thick carbon fiber pieces.
What's So Special About Carbon Fiber?
To truly understand what gives carbon fiber its unique visual properties you have to look at how it is made.
Its impressive strength goes all the way down to the atomic level. The carbon atoms that carbon fiber is made of are very stable and are able to withstand a great deal of stress.
- Carbon fiber begins as a strand of material that is passed through a vacuum-sealed oven until all the other elements are burned away leaving an incredibly thin strand of pure carbon only 5 microns in diameter (10x thinner than a human hair).
- Thousands of these strands are bundled together to form a single thread. (The number of strands in each thread depends on the type of carbon fiber, but the Infinity Cube will use carbon fiber with 12,000 strands per thread.)
- The threads are then woven together to make a flexible fabric.

They will also be able to work one on one with the project creator to customize anything about their order. (These will be the first cubes to ship.)
Risks and challenges
We are working closely with our manufacturer in order to ensure a smooth production run of the Infinity Cubes. We want to ensure that the quality of the product we deliver to our backers is of the highest level. For this reason we have added extra time to our estimated delivery to give us the time needed for the detailed-oriented work at hand.
The biggest challenge of this project will be receiving enough orders to be able to sell the Infinity Cube at a reasonable price. This is why we chose Kickstarter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
