LED Cubes, and Raspberry Pis

Raspberry Pis have been out for a while. And I’m thinking of picking one up for projects over the work term in May – August. ¬†(Also, because a Raspberry Pi is just something interesting to have… the possibilities of a cheap & low-power Linux system are numerous.)

I’m not sure how I got onto the subject of LED cubes today in particular, but only seems to be a single project for doing it with a Raspberry Pi, though many tutorials exist for doing it with arduinos.

Of course, I went poking around for components (particularly LEDs), and there’s a whole bunch of stuff posted on ebay.

Fun times ahead, hopefully…

Including new attempts at soldering! Whee!
