Company working on LED display cubes
A Chinese company called Seekway is working on developing 3D LED display cubes for the public. To create these true 3D images, a grid of LEDS are suspended in a large glass cube. The idea originally came from an organization called James Clar & Associates, which works with technology and art to come up with forward-looking furniture and spectacles.
The video below was taken from a prototype of the 3D display cube. The prototype contains 4096 LED diodes, arranged in a 16x16x16 grid. Every single diode can emit a wide range of colors and intensities, while the entire cube is capable of displaying a 30 frames-per-second animation. Now that this prototype has been shown to be kind of cool, the next cube the company is going to work on one that will be much larger: it will have 110,592 lights, arranged in a 48x48x48 grid.
With a cube containing this many diodes, it would be possible to display a fairly good quality of video or animation. Furthermore, multiple cubes can be combined to create even larger displays.
It is expected that the cube will have a integrated memory card that can be used to store minutes of animations that can be made in Windows. The cubes will also probably come pre-loaded with some nifty 3D effects.
