>lip that holds the inners and outers.

Did YJ literally just patent the Xcube mechanism for 4x4? Every inner 4x4 has a lip on it that holds it in place.

If they are talking about what I think I’m taking about, YJ very well might just end up becoming the vcube of this decade.


Side note: it’s interesting that they went with a spherical design, which is smoother, but usually more unstable.

Is that bad or good? I can't really understand what you mean by vcube of this decade. Also, what does that inner lip mean for the mechanism, is it more stable or something? I apologise for my ignorance.

It’s perfectly fine.
I think they are referring to the inner edge mechanism that holds the outer edges in place, which is very similar to a wing flange design on moyu cubes, and is on every competitive 4x4, as the wing flange is what’s holding them in place.

So there's a good chance we're looking at an Aosu WRM like 4x4x4 but at half the cost.
