3D LED display

Our project, in one sentence, is an orientation independent 3D LED display. We were inspired by various videos on youtube of similar cubes but also by the idea of creating an interactive 3-dimensional display. We built a 5x5x5 LED cube display and controller board which interfaced the cube to a Mega32 microcontroller. We can display a wide range of low resolution 3D images or animations on our cube and we use an accelerometer to detect the horizontal or vertical orientation of the cube and adjust the display so that it remains upright even if we turn the cube sideways. The cube was used to display a message (“ECE476 FINAL PROJECT DEMO”) and display a little light show animation.
