Is this a joke? I saw 8x8xi kits on eBay for $30. What am I missing?
Check the listings you're actually getting.
The majority of $30 kits are only White or a single color. The only $30 RGB one I saw, "Does not include RGB LEDs, or and PCBs or parts for bridge boards or music module"
Heck, 512 RGB LEDs (to make the 8x8x8 cube) right from China is more than $30.
They also require you to solder the actual cube together, which, as a person who made a 4x4x4 RGB cube, it will make you want to kill yourself.
This kit is basically plug and play.
I hear you, and it's a good point you make, I have definitely seen them with rgb and music modules, but 10x the price is too much.
