6 Design Goal: 8x8x8 single color LED or 5x5x5 RGB LED Start with 3x3x3 single color LED cubeExperimentationLearn how to use Arduino microcontrollerWork on light and music programmingMimic expected design for second cube to become familiar with final circuit on a smaller scaleBobby
7 Enabling LEDsDesign does not allow for LEDs in separate columns to light simultaneouslyFlash LEDs faster that human eye can detect (persistence of vision)Bobby
9 Building Solder Cube Construct LED driver circuitry Wooden base Check solder points before adding next layerConstruct LED driver circuitryWooden baseLED CasingMatt
10 Testing & Programming Major part of project Testing- results will not be qualitativeProgrammingGet acquainted with Arduino softwareLighting- patternsMusic- spectrum analysisMatt
11 Goals Size 3 single color cube Size 8 single color or size 5 RGB cube Effective light and music synchronizationProgramming development has no definitive endDependent on time and knowledge of Arduino softwareMatt
