Giant Cube Powered by 512 LEDs

More than just a shiny cube, this one is powered by 512 LEDs connected to STP16CP LED sink drivers. That’s not all, “each of those STP16CP chips can control 16 LEDs each and they can be cascaded off each other to cover all needed for the entire build.” Video after the jump.

Nick toyed with the animation code that controls the dancing LEDs of joy by first calculating their positions and sequences using the high-level mathematics language MATLAB.
