So if this is actually a thing (doubt it), maybe the best thing to do would be show what you have already accomplished with the process of making this cube a real thing, rather than give out random facts that have no proof.

I cannot release a video yet, and also cannot release it yet... BECAUSE IT'S NOT DONE! Dimwitted minds on this forum don't understand that if a product has not been released, maybe, just MAYBE... it isn't quite ready yet. This post is just to try and gain attention for the actual thing. Now excuse me while our team drafts build 2477 in PDS14.

And for all you smart ones: get ready for the best cube ever.

And cube technology in 2015 will have not advanced more than 23% speed, 7% control, 4% corner cutting, or 0% smoother. These are all done with statistics with pooling the top 3 cubes today (Zhanchi, Weilong, Shuangren V2), the top 3 cubes of 2010 (Guhong being the best), the top 3 of 2007, and the top 3 of 2004. 2004-07 was the fastest growing year, then from 2007-10 the growth was cut by 46%, then from 2010-13 the technology overall increased 31%. So yeah, we do our math.
Some marketing 101 for the next time, alright?

The 3x3 market has expanded a lot lately with a lot of great cubes. All of the releases were done with proof (hence they are called releases, not announcements). The cubes were actual great cubes and not concepts of great cubes. The fact that you have something sketched up does not mean it is a good cube. You cannot measure any of those things if you do not have a physical version of the said cube. I could say I've invented a 4x4 with a spring mechanism at the corner and edgepieces which allows flawless 45 degree corner cuts. It most likely would cut THEORETICALLY, but it would probably not work in the slightest as a whole. However you do not see me announcing a mind-bogglingly amazing 4x4 that will revolutionize the market.

So you're announcing a cube at the worst possible time and to top it all it will be released in over a year. You'd have to start paying people to remember this for the whole year. Hype for something that doesnt exist lasts as long as it takes to realize that you have nothing to show. Even the most retarded cuber will understand within a week that this is pure bs, until you show us something. Anything is fine if the hype is strong. Multiplying hype with a factor of 0 things to show equals 0 hype. Very simple.

You're claiming a lot of things with 0 proof. You're not even showing as a crappy sketch of the pieces. Not a video of the performance. NOTHING.

And to top it off you're calling your potential customers idiots for criticizing your flaws.

Great stuff.

I would like to mention that gravity does not move, it is actually a resistive force that pulls against things, which means saying "It moves like gravity and turns like wind" is an oxy moron.

The wind doesn't really "turn" either. And it's not very fast.
Also if it takes absolutely 0 effort to turn then it's made of a vacuum. Which would hurt.

Or it has rotational sensors, a very responsive computer chip, and some servos.

Oooh, yeah this is exactly what I am going to put on my calendar. Something that is going to come out next year, wouldn't wanna forget the cube that can only be described in selling words by the "maker". It must be awesome because they say it is!

Yes, as it didn't "deal with" my question but instead evaded it. It's a "reaction", but if you consider it as an answer because of that, I think you're misusing that definition. At the very least it's not an acceptable answer, as it didn't answer the question - it didn't explain anything. You just used one of the two words again instead of explaining why you used them.

Also, always a bad sign if google doesn't find any support.
