MuFFy – A Big Dump of Randomness

How My 3x3x3 Cube Works

This post is for a complete break down on the brains behind my 3x3x3 Cube. I had looked at a few programs people had shared and all seemed overly complex, hence I decided to just write my own.

Two criteria I set out to meet: must be scale-able and easy to add custom animations. I believe I have achieved both. 

Arduino Update

So, a few weeks in to Arduino its been great.

After doing the “basic” projects: blinking LED, blinking LED without delay… I then tried my hand at writing some of my own programs. My first project was RGB LED that increments through each colour mixing as it increases.

The next was RGB LED with random colour generation. This was my first play with PWM. Very basic program:

Arduino Journey Begins

Arduino Uno kit has been ordered and shipped. Should have it in hand in a few days.

Got a great deal from Deals Extreme. For $50 the kit includes:

  • 1 x Arduino UNO board
  • 1 x Development expansion board
  • 1 x Breadboard
  • 1 x LED emitter kit (red / blue / yellow; each 5pcs)
  • 5 x 10K resistors
  • 5 x 1K resistors
  • 8 x 220R resistors
