An 8x8x8 LED cube is a visual treat with 3D effects and patterns. It works on the concept of Persistence of Vision, a feature of the human eye which tricks our brain in to thinking that an object is present permanently at a place if it appear about 60 times in a second.
Since an 8x8x8 LED Cube consists of, well 8x8x8 = 512 LEDs, we cannot control all these 512 LEDs at once. What we can do is control 64 LEDs at a time at an extremely fast rate and trick our brain as if we were controlling all the 512 LEDs.
This LED Cube will light up any party.
Your friends will be mesmerized by its hypnotic effect as lights dazzle and dance in brilliant patterns.
This cube gives of a warm glow that is pleasant to the eye and will entertain people of all ages .
Though it might be quite a commitment to build, the effort will be worth the wait.
Surprise your friends and family with this incredible art piece, as it will be sure to turn heads.
Don’t skip this wonderful electronics project because it offers invaluable opportunities for electronic construction and Arduino coding.
