I am making a 8x8x8 RGB LED cube controlled by a micro:bit
I saw a cube on Twitter a while ago and just fell in love and wanted to make my own. I was also inspired by Leeds Hackspace’s cube. Then I found Hari Waguna on YouTube. Hari was building an 8x8x8 RGB LED cube controlled by an arduino but in a really cool way that I’ve decided to copy.
Hari is using WS2812Bs and Ping Pong balls!

Below will be a combination of tweets, blog posts and videos of my cube construction.

And here’s the first prototype column in action!
I brought it to school and my Code Club had a go at coding it:
