    I'm not exactly sure who to work with.

    I'm not sure who would be willing to talk to me, or how I will be able to contact anyone; I don't have social media. Not to mention, I did contact rubiks and moyu two years back, no response yet.

    I'm sure I'll find someone. I'm not sure how to contact anyone though, and be able to get correspondance.

    I guess I'd try talking to theCubicle, Cube Depot, or SCS. They're not manufacturers ,but they'd know how to contact manufacturers.

    For helping with development. Just getting in touch with manufacturers might be different.

    It's over a year later and you haven't even made a social media account for your brand yet? No wonder you haven't heard back from any manufacturers yet... they are not going to take you seriously unless you take your brand and products seriously and represent them in a professional manner.

    I don't mean to come off as a jerk because I think it would be really cool if your designs came to market. But ideas don't just become products overnight... branding, marketing, supply chain, tooling, and manufacturing are huge pieces of the process that it seems like you haven't even considered yet.

    Social media is something I've mostly been weary off for the most part. I'll need to talk to my parents about it.

    Due to some printer errors, we are on a small delay. But here is a stickered look at the puzzle from microsoft paint:

    [​IMG]

    Tell me: How do the stickers look? And how are the sticker shades?

    Ps: Trying to get a 3d printed model to report to you guys soon. It's a bit complicated when you don't own your own 3-D printer.
     
  9. Looks great! Maybe a brighter blue would be good cuz it kinda looks like purple.

    I decided to compare the 3v1 of yesterday to the 3v1 of today. Doesn't time fly, and BOY did the internals change a ton.

    Also decided to sneak in the new logo as a watermark. I won't put it on the white center to make it blind legal ootb.

    I really like the look of the cube and I look forward to the final product. This is personal preference on my part but I would prefer a lighter blue and a more lime green color shade. Other then that everything else looks great, keep up the good work.

    My 2 cents on the sticker shades is: blue, green, white, and yellow look fine, although it's maybe a little hard to tell from a rendering. Red and orange are a bit close. If I was starting from scratch I'd replace orange with black, and red with hot pink. Use pretty much the rest of the color scheme you have there, maybe more mustard in the yellow. Non-standard, and I may be the only guy that likes it, so I don't expect you'll go for it. I'd resticker a stickered cube that way, and someday we'll have custom stickerless schemes.

    Not a bad idea!!! I might include bright pink, bright blue, and black along with the cube as alternate sticker sheets.

    Yea, I like the color scheme overall, but I think it should just stick with red and orange, not black or pink. It would make for a better contrast, just it would throw people off when trying to solve.

    Due to the mechanism, Caps would probably be the better choice. though, I'm considering the choice between frosted and gloss finishes because of personal preferences.

    I MAY look into trying to make a stickerless version of another 3x3 down the line, though.

    Maybe stickerless like the Valk Power? Split caps?

    I want everyone to play "Spot the differences" between the 2016 prototype renders and the 2018 prototype renders.
