Cubatron -3D color display

CubatronMeet the Cubatron, it’s not Castro on a light cycle, it’s the world’s largest true 3D color graphics display. Assuierupe has a very cool Flickr photo set “The coolness of this display hack is difficult to convey via static images, but check out the project page for a couple of videos of the device in action. The device was built by Mark Lottor for Burning Man, and now takes up a corner of his Menlo Park living room.” Link to photos. Project page.

  1. Freakin cool. I’m curious as to how much the whole thing cost. Between this and MIT’s Disco Dance Floor I want to make some cool flashing lights!

  2. @cheesy:

    The project is made once, but you can order it on request for a mere 16.000 dollars. It is mentioned on the site somewhere. Other versions are available (like white).

    It is cool indeed, but anything with a matrix that can display shades on intervals will make a nice screen to look at. I’ve seen the waterfall lately, the wooden animated mirror, the screenwall made out of optical wires (glass) etc. And off course, the blinkenlights project (http://www.blinkenlights.de/), especially the Paris 256 colored version!!!
