What is an LED cube

What is an LED cube?


Basically an LED cube is a 3 dimensional cube made out of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). The Cube can be made in various ways but for this project, a simple setup is used that is controlled by an Arduino Uno microcontroller.



How does a cube of LEDs work?


Instead, LED cubes rely on an optical phenomenon called persistence of vision (POV). If you flash a led really fast, the image will stay on your retina for a little while after the led turns off.

Building the Layers

Each layer is made up of 8×8 LED Matrix consisting of 64 LEDs. In order to build the layers, take a Sunboard and make holes at a distance of 2.5CM. Place the LEDs and start soldering all the cathodes together. Create an 8x8x8 template so you can create the layers.
