Kinetacube Ring Box - Third Limited Edition

by Degrees of Freedom


About this Limited Edition:

Our Third Limited Edition Kinetacube Ring Box features a matte space grey anodized finish on its machined aluminum enclosure. Within the mechanism itself, further improvements to the joint design and assembly process have resulted in our most consistent, reliable, and precise movement to date.

Keeping with the space theme of this edition, we're introducing an optional star field laser engraving on all six faces of the cube which depict the night sky at a specific time, date, and location chosen by the buyer. The parameters of this moment are captured in an additional engraving on a concealed panel edge 

Like previous runs, all purchases include complementary laser engraving of a custom message. These messages are placed discretely on a panel edge where they're visible while the box is open but concealed when closed. 

Each box in this limited run of 40 pieces is laser-marked with its individual number, assembly date, design iteration, and design version. These markings are positioned similarly to the custom message and star field parameters, but oriented such that they aren't visible to the ring's recipient when the box is presented. Customized engravings will be placed in the same location on an adjacent panel to ensure that your personalized message is the only text that the recipient may see when the ring is revealed. 

Piece numbers within the run will be issued to customers in the order of purchase.

About the Ring Box:


In the Kinetacube Ring Box's patented design, six faces of a cube are formed by the links of a mobius kaleidocycle mechanism. With each face mapped to an individual link, the entirety of the box transforms during the opening process, revealing its contents in one fluid motion. Its single degree of freedom movement results in motion which is fluid, satisfying, and will continue to mesmerize even years after introduction.


Inside of the ring box's machined aluminum mechanism, a velvet-wrapped foam insert is installed to carry the box's contents. While closing, the insert's segmented design is wrapped around the ring, holding it securely in place. When opened, the foam insert flattens while continuing to grip safely onto the ring.


To permit opening of the ring box's mechanism, its back has a curved opening which is covered by its velvet-wrapped insert while closed. The pointed ends of three curved panels act as feet which allow the box to sit on its end.

thoughtful production

buying the box was a very personal experience.
Brian noticed even the smallest details and double checked everything. the email communication was informal and pleasant to read.

also I appreciated the small touch, that the serial number of the box corresponds to the date I used for night sky personalization.

I hope, that my beloved will like the box and the ring (coming soon). =)

Hi Brian,
The ring box is absolutely amazing. It has a really cool design, the box opens and closes smoothly and the joins are seamless. The construction is solid and does not feel cheap in any way shape or form. It added a certain flair to the moment making it that much more special :)

Fantastic Design

Brian, the Kinetic Ring Box is a really cool little device, and the anodized and laser etched aluminum finish (in the 3rd round) actually made a nice personal gift for a couple with roots in aerospace. And the very precise timestamp is great for meaningful moments. :)

Coolest ring box ever! Just need to get the ring so I can re-propose for our 31st

Precisely what I was hoping for!

The ring box definitely looks and feels as cool as it does in the videos. It's well machined with a great surface finish that never feels "cheap" in any way. I elected to not get any engraving on it and I did not opt for the star field finish just based on my own preference. The matte finish is still an outstanding option. The opening and closing is smooth and seamless. Well worth the wait and well worth the money.
