Rgb + Xyz = Fun

I came across this nifty concept for an electronic plaything earlier this week and thought I’d share it with you guys.

Interactive Color Cube LED by Steve Gilbertson

Steve Gilbertson’s interactive color cube uses a 3-axis accelerometer to detect movements and relays that information to a grid of brightly colored LEDs to create a portable light show in a box.

Each axis of the accelerometer (X, Y, and Z) directly influences one of the color channels (Red, Green and Blue), so every angle results in a unique color display. All of the electronics, including the array of 54 RGB diodes are packed into a tiny 2″ cube which then “floats” inside of a 4″ white acrylic box, which diffuses the light.

While this is currently a one-of-a-kind gizmo, I’m hoping that Gilbertson finds a way to mass produce battery-powered versions of the cube at some point. I’d definitely want one on my desk.
