I had gigantic plans of finishing up my LED Cube before Valentine’s Day. I worked on day and night over Christmas break, but it just wasn’t happening. I was on pace and then made an 8-hour soldering mistake. I opted to make a PCB of the LED Cube and just finish it up for Valentine’s Day 2019.
I needed something I could whip together fast, would make the ol’ lady happy, and do something halfway cool for me. I opted to repeat the ol’ PIR Motion detector that triggers an Arduino Mini Pro to wake it up from sleep. The LEDs glow brighter and fainter using PWM. Nothing fancy.
I was especially impressed with the Rustoleum red spray paint. I can’t stand their always-clogged nozzles, but their paint is incredible.
