led video cube project


this is the hotness, over 1,000 leds make a 3d cube which shows severely low-res video.

this project is an exercise in representing the real world with leds arranged in a cube. using video as the input, the computer takes the image, reconstructs the data and displays it in the cube.

i’m going to drop them a note and see if i get a how-to cooking, this could actually make tv watchable again.

    well, if you took an s-load of LEDs and made a sheet with them, and then spin the thing really fast; coupled with some rather clever software…
