Project: LED Cube Series

Here is a list of jobs you can do, if you want to contribute to the LED Cube Series.

Explanatory Articles

  • Write new explanatory articles and extend existing ones. For example:
    • AVR Toolchain on different linux distributions, mac os, windows.
  • The explanatory articles have to be proofread:
    • If you are a native speaker or very familiar with the language of the respective article, please correct any mistake you find.
    • If you are experienced in the field of the respective article, try to fix errors and add additional explanation where you think it is necessary.
    • If you are a beginner and currently trying to understand an article, point out where you think we should explain something differently.
  • Translate the articles. They have been written in english to reach a wider audience, but the workshops are still held in Germany.


  • Extend your cube and present the mods on a wiki page or your own website. Ideas for mods:
    • SPI Memory for the ISP header to store much bigger animations. (If you are in Goettingen, ask Marvin to get the required components. He probably has them.)
    • Linking of multiple cubes via a serial link. (Asynchronous, synchronous, whatever you want ;) )
    • 3D VU-Meter
    • Try to use the LEDs as inputs to program the cube. (You will have to check if this is possible... it might not be easy.)


  • Create a bootloader GUI for Linux (Package it for some common distributions), Windows, Mac.
  • Even better: Create a bootloader firefox plugin.
