You ought to take a picture of the finished cube in a dim room, and use that as your introduction image.
Neat! As I was scrolling down through this instructable, I was expecting just a nice origami paper cube, but this is way better. You should try using (or making your own) a diffused LED. The light would spread out a lot better.

Awesome job and thanks for sharing!
