Hello,
I would like to present a small project made thanks to the Teensy 3.0 and the OctoWS2811 library.
It is a 8x8 panels cube handmade, and the LEDs are "painted" by Serial communication from a Processing sketch.

I am thinking to make something bigger, but hand soldering and debugging of the bad solder joints took me already too much time!

A complete description of the project is posted here (http://petitstudio.blogspot.jp/).

Best wishes to all.

Nice freto.

Is there an example or tutorial on making the processing sketch for your cube?
Im looking to use processing in a project to light leds but I have not run into any examples on making the palette and drawing area.

For the 8x8 panels, you might check around the adafruit learning site since they sell 8x8 mini/small lcd panels, and you can find various bitmaps for the 8x8 displays (for example doing space invaders).

I was actually more interested in his use of the processing sketch that he uses to upload on the fly graphics to the Teensy.
I have searched around on the processing site for an example of a color pallet and drawing area to no avail.

Thanks for your comments.
I added the sketch and Processing files of this project at the bottom of the post (http://petitstudio.blogspot.jp/2013/12/led-cube.html).
