In this instructable I’ll show you how you can build your own LED Rubik’s cube. This project was done for an introductory electronics course at Pomona College. Groups were given approximately two months to complete a project of their choosing, the only requirement being that the project rely on electronics built by the students.
Our group decided to build a Rubik’s cube that uses RGB LED’s for its faces, and buttons to simulate rotations. This should walk you through the process in enough detail for it should be clear what you would have to do to recreate our project.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
