Mr Hobbyelectronics reviews the Freetronics CUBE4: RGB LED Cube Kit

In the last twelve months or so we've been offering a fantastic RGB LED Cube kit - the CUBE4: - a unique cube kit that also contains an Arduino Leonardo-compatible onboard to make programming and use very simple. However there is a little work to be done in assembly, and with some focus it can be done without too much effort. It's easy for us to say that, so we're thrilled to see others demonstrate this as well.

In this case Arduino and electronics enthusiast Mr Hobbyelectronics has assembled a CUBE4: from scratch, and shown the process in his video blog. As you can see from his video below, the CUBE4's design is such that it can be assembled with minimum effort and doesn't required drilled jigs or crazy balancing of wires:

For this and other interesting videos related to the Arduino, Raspberry Pi and technology world - subscribe to Mr Hobbyelectonics' YouTube channel. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Have you used a Freetronics product and shown the world? If so - we'd love to hear about it - please email support at or show off in the Project Showcase!

If you're interested in the cube demonstrated in the review above, check out our new CUBE4: RGB LED cube kit:


It's easy to construct and use, and with an onboard Arduino-compatible board the cube can be used to display all sorts of data or create visual effects. It's easily controlled via simple text commands via the USB port - or write your own Arduino sketch. It's incredibly customisable and there's so much more.
