20 of the clocks were sold so far. If we assume they'll sell all 90 of the next sock (I'm sure they will), that's $8,250 of income, minus expenses! Maybe they can put some of the profits towards a V2 eventually ;D

$8,250 gross, not net. As somebody running a business myself that kind of money disappears terrifyingly quickly. According to https://www.manta.com/c/mbynx0j/cubicle-us (can’t get the link to work, and it’s a pretty rough estimate anyway) TheCubicle’s annual revenue is about $1.1 million (which seems low to me, unless it’s net rather than gross). Either way $8,250 represents about 2.7 days worth of revenue.

Just curious, do cubicle employees earn enough to make it their full-time job?

I would assume so, it’s definitely more than a hobby at this point. I believe that Phil Yu has stated that he considers that he takes home a comfortable salary. I wouldn’t imagine his employees make as much as he does, but I would imagine they get paid a living wage.

Thing is, I'm pretty sure that TC has a decent amount of full-time employees, plus taxes, building expenses, etc.

It’s not like a lot of full-time employees are the reason for building expenses. The Cubicle only takes on more employees because they can. They wouldn’t if they couldn’t, and they would make their business model smaller as a result.

Seems legit

I'm not quite sure about the "latest and greatest" right after they release the XS.
Is there any word of new 6x6's that are in development (I'm hoping Shadow V2 or Aoshi GTS2)
