Xiaomi’s smart home Mi Cube now on pre-sale

Remember the smart home cube that could control a lot of your home gadgets that Xiaomi launched a while back?

Well, the device is now on pre-sale for a price of just $17.99. As we’d mentioned back at its launch, the Mi Cube “is a small pastel coloured cube measuring only 45mm x 45mm x 45mm, but has the guts to control your Xiaomi TV, lamp, air purifiers, home cameras and other select products.”

It’s quite easy (and novel) to operate also. Say for example you want to turn off your air conditioner, depending on how you’ve set it up, you’ll only have to flip over the Mi Cube and bam, your AC’s off. The same for the remaining 5 edges of the gadget.

    Xiaomi is trying to copy Elephone lately.
    Launches a device on Q1, starts presale on Q4 and finally goes on sale Q2 of the next year.

    We will probably see the MI Box and Mi Drone in a couple of years

        Dear beloved, it looks like that you don’t even know about your products.
        Good for you that there’s nobody there that can fire you.

        The MI Box on mi.com says “coming soon”

          My dear, as I see you mean the mi box for the american market. I beg you to wait just a little longer, we will soon launch it. any interest in the usual version: http://www.mi.com/hezi3/

            That’s exactly what meant.
            You launch products and start shipping months later just like Elephone.

            The usual version? You mean the older version right?

            Oh wait… what’s the difference between the two versions?
            Same hardware and only different software?
