3D Display Cube
by Admin1 / August 25, 2004

1000 LEDs soldered into a spatial display unit.
And so goes my fascination with LEDs. James Clar is an artist. He makes interactive lighting pieces that could be/ should be products. The 3D cube is a 10 x 10 x 10 freestanding cube matrix with 1000 individually controllable LEDs. "Each LED acts as one pixel in the spatial array and can be refreshed at a rate of over 60 frames per second creating a low resolution 3D television.". Add input, sound for example, and the cube displays the "info" in 3D. There are other lights by Clar in the extended post.
