Features:

  • The L3D Cube is a full color 8x8x8 LED cube that shows brilliant images and animations in 3D.
  • Easier to assemble than an Ikea shelf!  Takes just 30 minutes, no soldering required.
  • No programming required to get started -- just assemble and plug it in. Comes preloaded with our most popular visualizations.
  • Once you're ready to start programming on the Cube, make new 3D apps in minutes using Processing or Arduino (a.k.a.Wiring).
  • Create and share your own 3D Cube apps online at CubeTube.org with a click of a button.

All of the hardware & software is completely open source under a Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 2.5 license.

Specification:
  • Power: 5V 1A USB power can handle most applications on your Cube - so, this sucker can run off your computer, wall wart, or a battery pack. For super intense visualizations, we've also included a 2A adapter. 100VAC - 220VAC input (you will need to supply your own prong adapter if outside the US)
  • 512 WS2812B RGB LEDs, 100% tested.  We ship with a replacement reed of 8 LEDs, just in case.
  • Comes with a Spark Photon for instant WiFi connectivity and blazing processor speeds.
  • Arduino-compatiable -- includes headers for adding your favorite Arduino.
  • Laser-cut acrylic housing.
  • Built-in microphone and 3-axis accelerometer.
  • Assembly instructions here.

Five ways to use your L3D Cube

Plug it in, no setup!  A standard set of visualizations will automatically start playing when you first plug in your cube.  *NEW:  you can control the visualizations by tilting your cube, thanks to the included accelerometer!

Download new applications from CubeTube wirelessly to your cube with the click of a button.

Write your own programs for the Cube in Arduino language or Processing.  The programs can be stored in the cube's memory or can be streamed to your cube from a computer over your WiFi network.  Here's the definitive guide to programming in 3D in a cube.

Connect together multiple cubes and make them interact

Hack it!  Add your own sensors for new interactions or make improvements to your cube itself.  Everything (hardware+software) is open-source and fully documented so hacking is fun!
