This will get your attention:

Now, go buy the kit: eightCubed

Apparently there is a whole community of people devoted to building LED sculptures that I didn't know about.  I admire the skill of anyone who can assemble this - it is a stack of LED's - 512 in the above photo - that are held together using only their leads.  Did I mention that each LED has 4 leads coming out of it?  That is an amazing number of connections and effort.

The good news:  You can download the schematics and the software to build on yourself

The better news:  You can buy a 4x4x4 cube from Hypnocube.com and VisualCube.org and save yourself a massive headache.

Who wants to get me one for a birthday present? :)
