4x4x4 V2 LED Cube Kit (White)

HCKITS0071

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 64 LED cube. The kit has been specifically designed to be easy to build and includes only through-hole components so that even someone with basic soldering skills, a soldering iron and a few simple tools can build it. It comes pre-flashed with 13 animations so is ready to go as soon as its all been soldered together

For Arduino users this kit is also Arduino compatible and together with our free Arduino library you can write and upload your own cube animations (requires the Arduino IDE and a USB to serial adapter to upload sketches).

Kit Options
  • Add PCB Template
  • Without PCB Template

This is version 2 of the kit that includes the following changes:

* Much bigger measuring 83x83x110mm when fully built

* DC socket with USB to DC Jack cable replaces serial cable for powering directly from a 5V USB adapter

* ICs are now socketed

* Bigger PCB with more spacing between components to easier construction

* Optional LED template PCB to make constructing the LED cube easier

* Now available with cube LEDs in blue, red, white, green, and pink

* Base LEDs are now controllable



The kit is available with 5 different LED colour versions:

64 x 3mm BLUE LEDs (HCKITS0070)

64 x 3mm WHITE LEDs (HCKITS0071)

64 x 3mm RED LEDs (HCKITS0072)

64 x 3mm GREEN LEDs (HCKITS0073)

64 x 3mm PINK LEDs (HCKITS074)
