In the Maker Shed: LED Cube Kit


IMG_2182 2.JPG
The LED Cube kit is an animated 3x3x3 cube composed of 27 individual single-color LEDs. This project was a popular hack of the MiniPOV, and now the Maker Shed carries a kit that contains all the parts needed to make you own. The LED Cube kit was inspired by the amazing color 3D Borg cube by Das-Labor.

Andrew Stock created a super-easy-to-use web-based tool that lets you visually design your own animation patterns for the LEDcube. The results can be easily pasted into the LEDcube firmware and programmed into the LEDcube. (When creating Code, choose “Height-depth-width order”). His web-based tool can be found here. (works best using Firefox)

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
