One of our Maker Camp participants has been working on an LED cube, for which he has some lofty plans:

Currently working on the gigantic mind control LED cube. With its awesome power to mesmerize millions at a time via live streaming video and hangouts online it will no doubt make a powerful addition to our plans to Take Over The WORLD!! BUAAHAAAHAHA!!

Maker Camper Dylan Young had this to share:
