Are bigger or smaller cubes better? Why are brands normally using 55 mm?
@Username: Username: Actually said the best reason why. It's not to big, but not too small. It's just right. I actually thought of 55.5mm before the valk came out as the golden size, and was pleased to see that QiYi went with it.. The cube i've been designing is 55.5mm.

And what is tempest?
Usually a name for a violent storm and also the name of one of the late William Shakespeare's plays. The name was suggested back in 2016 by a person known as iamspeedcubing (I wonder where he is now.) I liked the name and have ran with it since.

Wow this is a great project
Hopefully it will be mass produced
weird question but how old were you when you started and did you have a 3d printer or something to test on
I mostly borrowed my library’s 3d printer, and then did an upgrade to shapeways.

How close? Like 1 month or like a year?
If everything goes to plan (ie: The samples I try are to a high standard), the estimate is by the end of the year for real this time.

If it doesn't though, we may need to wait a little longer, but chances are low that this would happen.

That is undecided, but I'm hoping for $30-$35.
Hugely looking forward to this, hoping everything goes well for you. A lot if us are looking for something "new" as opposed to the big hitters producing minor reiterations on already best selling flagships, constantly raising the ceiling of what is considered a good price to pay for a cube.

Best of luck, I will be constantly following your progress, and I will be sure to support you by purchasing one from a retailer in future.
