Resuming work... with some possibilities to introduce a GFX touch control of Chibi Cube's games.

Well done guys, well done! What is that music?
Are you going to sell those as a kit? I'd need something like that to introduce the 3D display drivers to GFX ;-)

Also, I've tweeted it.

The components are all cheap logic ICs. A kit (without LEDs...) would not be a bad idea, I'll have them design a new revision of PCB in order to make the connector UEXT-compatible and fix the few small errors.

Sounds good. When you have anything like a laser cutter, you could add a template to get the LEDs aligned properly to the kit as well (I am pretty sure I wouldn't be the only one who'd appreciate that).

Hi tectu, music is Tuner theme from Need For Speed Carbon. I'm still working on code: function writed have more potentialities than shown in this video and they have been written in perspective of larger future works as someone taught me. As soon as possible i'll start my work with gfx's widgets and I'll try to integrate this with my code.

More cube, interesting because you can see the advanced tooling used to align the LEDs....

Thanks for some more media content :)
Also, that guy does not make bad music at all - at least for my taste. I would love to have music like that for my videos.
However, don't you think that this very fancy http://chibios.org link in the video could lead to people thinking ChibiOS is an LED cube or something? :D

The RGB is already being designed and it will be able to control the intensity of each RGB channel :) I think to make PCBs available if there is demand.
