I wish to use a command like

Outer[ List, {0,1}, {0,1}, {0,1}, {0,1}]

but with 30 (or more) times {0,1} instead of four.
I can easily generate such a list by Table[ {0,1}, {30}]
however it has an additional {}.  How I can use this list
in Outer?

Zvi:

a = Outer[List,{0,1}, {0,1}, {0,1}, {0,1}];
b = Outer[List,Sequence@@Table[{0,1}, {4}]];
c = Outer[List,##]&@@Table[{0,1}, {4}]l
a==b==c

True

General pattern:
A@@B[x,y] (full form Apply[A, B[x,y]]) -> A[x,y]
(head B replaced by A).
