LED cubes are true 3D displays that work by lighting up points in a 3D lattice of LEDs.
On the 3D display you can produce some truly mesmerizing animations. This tutorial will walk you through creating an LED cube for yourself that is completely self-contained and…Continue

Well, someone had to do it. And first prize goes to Heineken with their new Heineken Ignite Bottle, featuring LED lights and sound/motion activation sensors. Heineken hosted a VIP party to unveil the new interactive beer bottles, which light up in time to beats of the music and also on motion when people drink from the bottle… And when I say someone had…Continue

This pocket watch was made with an ATmega645P to control the array of LEDs, an RTC, two buttons to activate and alternate operation modes, a vibration motor, a buzzer and a rechargeable lithium coin cell battery charged by an USB connector. The biggest challenge of the design was driving…Continue
This tutorial will show a simple way to control an RGB LED with the Arduino. An RGB is a LED which reproduces three colors: red, green and blue. It has four terminals, one for each color and the GND. It is possible to illuminate each one of the colors with different…Continue

I'm a little out of my league here - I'm an artist who works with electronics. This was a project I did in 2010. Caged is an 8x8x8 cube using a boarduino and some custom boards we made to house the LED drivers and microphones. Caged responds to anger (decibel level) using Conway's game of life programming.
There is a lot of information on the project…Continue
