So what is an LED cube and why bother? Well the first I can answer fairly quickly. An LED cube is a cube filled with LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that can be turned on and off individually as to generate a certain pattern. When it comes to why one should bother to generate such a cube, then I can only state my reason: I wanted to learn PIC programming... It may seem a bit over the top, but as a simple yet impressive start up project I can highly recommend it if you, too want to learn about PIC programming.
