Experimenting with wireless control of the Freetronics CUBE4 RGB LED Cube

Our CUBE4: RGB LED Cube kit has many applications, from simple lighting effects right through to spectrum analyser displays and system notifications. Furthermore various customers have been working on remote control of the cube, and Freetronics forum member dparson has demonstrated how to have two-way communcation with the cube using inexpensive nRF24L01+ data transceivers.

After some work with the cube's Arduino library, the SPI bus and some trial-and-error, the system is now complete and the cube can be controlled from a remote Arduino or other device with serial output to another nRF24L01+. For an indepth explanation of this, sit back and watch the following video:

If you're interested in this project, or building your own RGB LED cube - check out our 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.
