This week- LED cubes

What are they? They are cube structures made from a LED framework arranged in rows and columns. Each LED is accessed using a micro controller running a program that ultimately creates light patterns that are fun to watch. These patterns are user defined allowing one to be as mild to wild as he/she desires. Here is an example from Youtube.

I want to build one like this. The building aspect doesn't bother me, it's the code that I'm not looking forward to. I was never one for writing code, kind of gives me a rash...

Anyway I'll keep you posted if I decide to give it a go.
