You just described Fox-1, and we are building four of them. So far we have an experiment for one, and have applied for a free launch from NASA. We find out January 30th if we get it, then it's a race to finish and test the satellite in time (and pay for it).
Rides to orbit are much easier to find for 1kg cubes, than for 50kg ones.
