The All Spark Cube, a 16x16x16 full color LED Cube, is the latest creation of a group of engineers and IT specialists and some volunteers from Adaptive Computing. The company has also announced that its LED cube was displayed at VMWorld in San Francisco last month and will be on display at the Mini Maker Faire in Library Square, Salt Lake City.
Adaptive Computing is a provider of private cloud management and High-Performance Computing (HPC) workload management software.
The All Spark Cube measures four feet square and six feet tall with a clear acrylic protective box over the LEDs. It provides life-giving force to the “Transformers” (a 2007 Live Action Film). It has a large scale, full color LED Cube — essentially a three-dimensional display monitor. It contains 4,096 LEDs organized into a two” wide grid. The All Spark Cube is arranged in a 16 x 16 matrix.
More than 1500 volunteer worked hard to design, build, and test the All Spark Cube.
The All Spark Cube was created by volunteers at Adaptive Computing. “It’s a great place to work. We have very creative, wildly talented minds working here at Adaptive so we do cool projects such as the Cube,” says in a statement Ian Nate, Community Marketing Manager at Adaptive Computing. Adaptive Computing is currently hiring and seeking talented people with Cloud and HPC experience.
This LED cube has 3000 feet of buss wire and 17,000 solder connections interconnect the LEDs in a 3D matrix, and 16 custom designed circuit boards control visual effects from inside a custom cabinet.
