LED light cubes are a hugely popular and fun project and with this kit you will have all the parts to build your very own. Building on the popular 8x8x8 cube kit (HCKITS0022), we decided to create an easy to build through-hole version for those of you who are better suited to this kind of soldering. The kit includes all the components necessary to build the Arduino compatible driver base board and 64 3mm LEDS to build a 4 x 4 x 4 cube.

The kit is available with 4 different LED colour versions, please select your colour in the menu to the right:

64 x 3mm BLUE LEDs (HCKITS0041)
64 x 3mm GREEN LEDs (HCKITS0042)
64 x 3mm RED LEDs (HCKITS0043)
64 x 3mm WHITE LEDs (HCKITS0044)

We have also now added options for the same cubes but with a white PCB base (instead of the standard black).

Blue LEDS on White PCB (HCKITS0053)

Green LEDs on White PCB (HCKITS0054)

Red LEDs on White PCB (HCKITS0055)

White LEDs on White PCB (HCKITS0056)


The kit also comes preloaded with several demo patterns so once constructed simply connect the cable and your cube will immediately jump into life. But the fun doesn't have to stop there. If you like to tinker the kit is compatible with the Arduino development environment and we have also created an Arduino library which is available for download from the software section of our support forum. This library makes it as easy as possible to create your own LED cube sketches and add your own patterns.


What you get in the kit:

4x4x4 Cube PCB
64 x LEDs (kits available in blue, red, white)
16 x 100ohm Resistors
4 x 220ohm Resistors
1 x 10K Resistor
1 x Tact Switch
4 x White 5mm LEDs
3 x 100nF Capacitors
2x 20pF Capacitors
1x ATMega328 IC
1x 16MHz Crystal
1x ULN2003 IC

One of the following: 

64 x 3mm BLUE LEDs (HCKITS0041)
64 x 3mm GREEN LEDs (HCKITS0042)
64 x 3mm RED LEDs (HCKITS0043)
64 x 3mm WHITE LEDs (HCKITS0044)

Plus: A USB to serial interface cable that can be used to power and reprogram the completed cube.

Please note that some familiarity in soldering is recommended to construct this kit. A soldering iron, solder and some tools will also be required.
