How-to: build an 8×8 LED cube kit

in how-to, kit biz, LEDs by the machinegeek | 2 comments


Chris from PyroElectro presents this post explaining the process for building an 8x8x8 LED cube (that’s 512 LEDs) from a kit. This is essentially Chris’ review of the Jameco 8×8 LED Cube Kit. He explains both how to build the LED cube and how to make the electronics that control it. Visit PyroElectro for more construction videos and details. The results look amazing, though the kit weighs in at about $140.

    Woah, I had the luck of buying about 1000 small 3mm Transparent Blue LEDS just some days ago for 3$ (from a local warehouse) and I was hoping to make the cube, this post has come just in time… FTW

    If you want to see this thing’s giant RGB grandfather just google “cubatron”. Perhaps you should add Black Rock City to your August travel plans (before it self destructs completely).
