https://www.cinks-labs.de/blogs/the-end-of-the-universe/the-end-of-the-universe Guess this is why they lied to me multiple times and never bothered to ship my items. Then they have the gall to try and sell stuff to me despite not shipping me my orders and stringing me along.
In the backerkit section it says my order shipped but I haven't received any tracking number and there hasn't been any update since "Last updated on 04/14/2023 11:00:48 AM". I have seen that some people have received their shipments. I've tried commenting here and emailing them but no reply. 27 days ago they said We are thrilled to announce that the very last orders from the Black Hole Sphere campaign here on Backerkit Crowdfunding have been successfully shipped! Is there anyone else like me who haven't received anything or a tracking number? I had an addon for Canvas Print. Could there be a delay due to that not being ready? If so please let me know. I think I've been patient waiting four months and waiting almost a month since they say the campaign has finished to give them time to ship. Thanks to anyone who knows anything about what is going on and lets me know.
Project Update: Campaign Finished!
We are thrilled to announce that the very last orders from the Black Hole Sphere campaign here on Backerkit Crowdfunding have been successfully shipped! Thanks to your incredible support and patience, we were able to bring this exciting project to life. Over the past weeks, we have worked tirelessly to manufacture the Black Hole Spheres and ensure their safe delivery to you. It has been quite a journey, and we are proud to have achieved our goal.
Feedback and Inquiries
If you already received your goods, we would be extremely happy about some feedback! We created this tiny survey, where you can upload photos, and if you are in the mood send us a small comment about how you perceive our creations.
One Question Survey
Together, We've Made It Happen!
If you are interested in our previous work, take a look at our website. We aim to get an idea of the size and scale of our Universe with different magnitudes shown in our Spheres.
It´s fascinating, how the scale of the universe larger than us is comparable to the scale of the universe inside each spec of dust around us.
Best regards, Clemens and team CinkS labs
Hi, got my wall light today, thanks! Still need to figure out how it's to be mounted (I haven't checked if there's any info on the project page, but if there's any advice, I'd be happy to hear it). Anyway, I noticed the sort of inner framing (i e. under the glass) of the light has maybe been damaged a little, a couple parts look like they have cracked and chipped. It's mostly not visible unless looking at the light from right next to it, so I don't think it'll be an issue. Just wondered if this would be a problem, and/or if it's meant to be like that (the biggest is right where the power cord comes in, so I dunno if that's just to make room for the cable). Also, what's the benefit of the wifi connection that apparently comes with the remote (at least, with the remote's instructions)? The remote seems to work without it, too - even if some of the settings I still need to figure out :P Thanks!
Project Update: The Wall Light at the End of the Tunnel
after a long period of silence, we can finally inform you that the remaining 50 orders containing Wall-lights will leave our warehouse early next week. The production took considerably longer than expected, partly because we had ordered better LED controllers for you, but their delivery was unfortunately delayed.
We have one last drawback, though. Unfortunately, our manufacturer purchased the wrong power supplies, which means without an adapter they only work for the EU socket. So you will need an adapter or your own power supply. To give you the opportunity to possibly order this in advance and then immediately start using your wall light. You will need a dc power supply with 12V/0.5-1A and a 5,5mm plug. It´s pretty common, so you might already own one, if not we have found an example from Amazon here:
And an adapter that would also work is this:
Despite all the obstacles, we hope you enjoy your wall lights undiminished and we would love to see photos of how you present yours at [email protected] !
Best regards, Clemens, Jan, and Karja
Project Update: Surprise Surprise - Seems Like We Are Not Highest Priority
we're really sorry for the delay with some packages. We initially thought it was just a simple mistake with the tracking numbers not being updated. However, we investigated further and found out that our fulfillment partner had rescheduled some of our orders due to a big and time-sensitive project they were working on. It's frustrating for us too, especially since we had confidently said that all the parcels were already on their way (our partner even boasts about handling up to 10,000 parcels a day, so we assumed the 400 would go out at once).
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we can now happily announce that their job finally seems to be finished, because the rest of the spheres are now on their way to their happy new owners.
Speaking of happy owners: We would be VERY happy about some positive feedback or pictures at [email protected]!!!
Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Project Update: Shipping Update: The Light at the End of the Black Hole
We also would love to receive pictures and comments from our happy customers who have already received their Black Hole in a Sphere. Our spot checks have shown that the majority of the tracked packages worldwide were already delivered a few days ago. If you have any questions or encounter any issues, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Clemens and Team CinkS labs
Ps: Due to many requests, we will relaunch the campaign on Kickstarter in a few days, so if you or your loved ones wish to have another sphere, feel free to support us again.
Since we always have to offer something new on Kickstarter, we would like to bring you a new Led base that we have come up with. This will most likely be given to the first backers as an early bird and will also be available for purchase.
Project Update: The small BIG Bang!
You can anticipate receiving your tracking information within the next 3 days, and delivery times will differ depending on the country of destination, ranging from a few days to two weeks. Unfortunately, the Wall-lights are still in production and we will talk about that in the next update.
Even though not all packages will have arrived by then (obviously), we will be launching our new campaign, The Space Scapes, in two days. As we understand that some backers may want to receive their Black Hole campaign products before pledging to another campaign, we have scheduled a 30-day duration for the Space Scapes campaign, ensuring that the majority of packages from the Black Hole campaign should have arrived by then.
Nevertheless, we would like to ask for your help to achieve a strong campaign start by backing us in the first 24 hours.
In short: Our campaign offers wall-hanging pictures featuring beautiful space-related scenes that can be easily flipped, rotated, swapped, stacked, and stored to fit the exact space you have available for this type of art. It´s an everlasting beauty starting at 29€!

Project Update: BIG News
Get yourself ready for your Black Hole products, we will start shipping a big chunk next week! We are super happy that we are able to fulfill this campaign much faster than we thought, even though, the Wall-lights will need some more production time.
A short overview of what will happen next:
1) We will charge your cards now. You will get an email if the charging failed (please contact us then).
2) When you have been charged, you will get an email with an order confirmation (no need for you to act).
3) As soon as your product is shipped, you will also get an email with shipping information and a tracking number.
Once your items arrived, feel free to leave a comment.
Important: If there are any problems with your order please email our support ([email protected])! If you only write a comment with your problem, we probably aren't able to help you, because we won't share any personal order details in the comments and emails will be answered faster as well.
You may take a look at the manufacturing process:
We also came up with another (hopefully) cool idea to add to your space collection:
The Space Scapes
This is a completely new part of our CinkS labs journey. For the first time, we want to offer beautiful space decoration not in the form of glass, but in the form of a high-quality tarp, which is printed on both sites in vibrant colors and will enrich every room.
Beware! These are not simple posters – the motives are printed on tearproof, water-repellent, and even flame-retardant tarps. To attach a Space Scape to your wall, there are practical eyelets on each corner that allows you to flip, rotate and swap these with ease.
Tell us your thoughts in the comments and as always - feel free to write us an email if you have any questions or problems.

We are here for you and thank you very much for being there for us!

Project Update: UpLate - Production in Progress
My Dearest Backers,
time flies and a new update is slowly overdue. In the last two weeks we have evaluated the surveys, finalized the models so that everything can go into production, and ordered needed materials, such as the LED controllers for the wall lights. We just finished applying the 10% discount on our early birds and would like to give you a few more days to check your orders and next week we will also charge the cards for the add-ons.
Nevertheless, the production of the first items has already begun and I hope to have some nice pictures of our production for you in the next update.
We would like to thank you all for the lively participation, especially for your feedback on our models, because this allowed us to offer our spheres with two more motifs, which were also lively ordered. In the end, our last completed model was also the most popular and we are very excited about your feedback when the spheres have arrived with you!
As a third and last point, we would like to introduce a little branch we want to grow on Kickstarter. We created a second account to gauge interest in minor projects that can run relatively easy on the side and that do not depend on glass completely.
Here we will start with our already presented wall canvas, but also aim to introduce other interesting novel designs and inventions.
We look forward to a lively interest for our first Campaign:
The Space Scape!
The Modern Wall Tapestry. Beautiful Photographs From the Depths of the Universe for Your Home, Office or Even Garden.
Soon on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cinks/the-space-scape
Have a great Weekend!
