led cube

LED Cubes are fascinating, so much so that you are able to create endless visualization effects in 3D space. I discovered LED cubes in 2009 and I built one using stock LEDs that I had lying around. LED cubes are relatively easy to build if you have the patience and perseverance to see it through the end. LED cubes up to 5x5x5 in size are manageable, while anything beyond that would be a struggling endeavour for someone to undertake. The reason is that the amount of required LEDs is equal to the cube power of the LED length. For example, a 4x4x4 cube would require 64 LEDs, a 5x5x5 would need 125 LEDs, a 6x6x6 would need 1296 LEDs! At 6x6x6, a general purpose MCU would not be able to keep up with the refresh rate, and you would need several of them or an FPGA.

Website is launched! Brief history: I started this blogging website as a response to another project that I was working together with Isaac Penny on from early 2013 to mid 2015. For that project, I had to write a website frontend and a backend system (good stuff) for the server that is to handle the satellite messages coming from the boat. As such, I gained an intuitive sense behind the languages that drive website development and I decided to start a blogging platform to connect to a wider audience.
