No the WCA doesn't currently allow any other timers but I think the reasoning for that is reliability so I suspect if the QiYi ones can be shown to be as reliable as speedstacks ones then maybe the WCA will allow them.
Pretty sure the reason for not allowing anything other than Speedstacks is that everybody else's timers violate the patents of Speedstacks.

But it's a Rick Roll The Cubicle QR Code.
We were trying to make sure any other visitors wouldn't know that the link that said THIS ONE would be a rickroll, but yes, one of the qr codes is a Rick roll.
Somebody said that all of the qr codes are a Rick roll in the comments, maybe the Cubicle is rickrolling us inside of a rickroll?

Aohu wrm megaminx (original aohu sucked so idk what to expect)
Aoyan wrm skewb
found a pic of the boxes on an instagram page and the megaminx on dailypuzzles
I found a Russian video about the Aohun WRm and it looks to be pretty decent. It has ridges similar to the MGC megaminx and features the dual adjustment system. The corners are very squared off and I'm not sure if that will cause problems with catching. Better yet, this video has information on the one, the only, MGC 7x7! Here is what he had to said about it: "In principle, the 7x7x cube inherited almost all the traits of others cubes MGC 4x4, 5x5, and 6x6, and exactly the characteristic smooth, but spinning fast and not will be very different". I think a little bit of that was google translate's fault but I'm still extremely hyped for this cube assuming it fits my turn style as the 6x6 does.

Here is the vid

Yeah, here they are. Two shells in the mechanism, the inner shell is a 5x5, like the Yuxin 17x17 (not sure about the distribution of layers on the *Shengshou* 17x17, but *all* of their big cubes have two shells).

Also, an earlier photo of a 18x18 from last year (not sure who the manufacturer is).

It is interesting how the WRM Megaminx has ridges...

This time it means, umm... with ridges?

Yeah, moyu didn't think that one trough. Aohun GTS2 would have been a more accurate name, regardless, do you think the super square corners will cause issues? I know the difference isn't huge on 3x3 between square and round corners but on a megaminx it seems like it would be getting in the way more, not sure why I think that though, maybe more pieces per turn interact?

From what I can see, the centers seem much more rounded/cone shaped than the main 3 megaminxes on the market right now. That gives more room for the squared off corners to just slide over the center without any catching.
