Build an Arduino-powered RGB LED Cube

It's always great to see people building various LED cubes that are driven by an Arduino, and a new example has been published by Emiliano Valencia. His version is a full RGB LED configuration and driven by an Arduino-compatible circuit and TLC5940 constant-current LED driver ICs.

Building your own cube successfully requires a great amount of patience and accuracy, and this has been demonstrated by Emiliano in his tutorial as he explains how to keep the cube lined up during assembly. 

However as you can see from the image above, the final project is quite successful - so visit his Instructable for complete details. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're interested in building your own cube - but from a convenient and proven design - 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. For more information and to order, visit the CUBE4 page.
