Hackduino LedCube




My biggest problem with the Arduino was that I always had to be taking down all my finished projects and redo it on a new one. I found The Hackduino site so I built one myself and it worked brilliant!
Now I do that to almost all my projects.
It costs around 7-10$ for the parts you ned to make the Atmega328 work.
So it´s really worth it to do if you are content with your projekt that involving the Arduino.
I ordered the ATmega328 chip with the 16Mhz crystal and two 22pF capacitors.
Then I bought a 5 voltage regulator,10nF and a 22uF capacitor. Then some resistors and transistors for the led cube.
As you can se it´s a 3x3x3 led cube so you need 27 leds and 9 resistors and 3 NPN transistors.

I hope this gave me some inspiration.
I would appreciate if you comment and say what you thought.

    Nice video! I considered the box around the cube too but ignored it. But your´s looked awesome!

    Trust me man, really do consider some sort of enclosure. Before my case for the cube, the cube got sat on, stepped on, and smashed way to many times. I didn't want my handwork to go to waste so I built the enclosure. But it's a really fun project huh? I've made like 4 so far. I've given some to friends and such. I get acrylic cheap at my local TruValue store, sometimes even free if they gave a broken/cracked piece. Usually it doesn't take much acrylic anyway. Thanks for the comment about the video too. Sorry if there are spelling errors, doing this from my iPhone

    True, true with the enclosuer and thanks! It´s a really good and fun project to give away! This cube was a Christmas present to my dad. (y)
