Strobo Trip Light Illusion Toy

Any word about availability on the Strobo Trip? Been waiting patiently for it to show up in the store, I know I want one, and I think it would (will???) make a great gift for the holidays. Everyone needs a cool toy under the tree.

The Strobo Toy illusion/effect is darned nifty. I recommend it.

So, will the store be getting more some day, or is it gone forever?

You guys the toy is still available in the store...

I made a video of the complete set. Labor of fan love! Mostly for the Freaks who aren't able to get their own toy. Here are all the discs in action, arranged in a way that made sense to me (especially the biological ones!). Includes the unboxing.
(the skeleton saying "trippy" animation was really hard to capture in video. that's why that section looks a bit odd)

Now that there's a sweet topic about Strobo Trip, here's a bad video of my modded strobo trip using black lights:

I got my StroboTrip yesterday. I love it! The best Flaming Lips product of the year, I think.

It even worked with Duracell batteries (it turns out those are the only AAAs I had in the house). I just had to give it a little shake the first time, and then it turned on just fine.

Got my StroboTrip in the mail today and the flash drive is not being recognized. It's not empty or blank, it just isn't being recognized as a drive at all. Anyone know if I can download the music somewhere?
