    Default Cool 8x8x8 LED cube

    Now here is a very cool project should you be so inclined.

    Would make an awesome desktop conversation piece.

    Yep, that is seriously cool. It would have to go inside a perspex box though or my cat would shred it.

    LOL, funny you should say this Doc, I was thinking more along the lines of "Epoxy Potted". Would be a bitch to have that delicate matrix mangled.

    I was not expecting that at all. The video IS worth a thousand words. The different pattern of lights reminds me of a night club...mixed with the music of course. Definitely worth having as a display or center piece but designed differently.

    An even larger RGB matrix with ILDA input would be cool.

    Damn! The only problem is, if I build one of these I would stop working with lasers!
