UberCube X4- the Benchtop LED Cube

Introduction: UberCube X4- the Benchtop LED Cube

About: Im a freelance electronics designer who loves to do photography and spends the day working for his college Solar Car Team apart from studying the B.Tech course in Electrical Engineering.
I always wanted to build LED Cubes but it took me a while to figure how to make one which is good looking and serves the purpose as a decorative piece on my workbench. So, I made a simple 4x4x4 LED Cube using TI`s MSP430 microcontroller and other ICs i ordered entirely from TIs Free Sample Program.

I designed the board in Eagle and then Etched it using toner transfer method. Then assembled the entire cube in a laser cut box so that it stays strong for long.

Here is the video of the entire build process.
Hope you like the project!

Code for the project is available on this github repo.

    Thanks!
    I designed the box and all in CorelDraw and then got them laser cut/engraved!
