Gans has recently made a very exciting announcement about their new cube called “Gan Helium” on their Facebook page (the post now seems to have been deleted). In the post, they said it features “inner circle corner feet”, which seems to a modification of their squared-off corner design. They also stated that the cube will float and remain stationary in midair, due to the shells of the corner and edge pieces being ultrapacked with helium. It features a revolutionary stabilizer in the core which will prevent it from rising or falling on its own, powered by a small p675 battery. It also has magnets with adjustable strength; this was designed in collaboration with Chris Tran of Cubicle Labs. Lastly, Gans seems like it might do a branding change, as the cube has a new blue-purple logo on it. The post said that the cube is slated for release on the day of January 1st, 2017. When reached for comment, Mr. Gan blocked us when we asked why the post disappeared. We screenshotted a picture of the cube before the post was deleted.
