Companion Cube

Duncan Miller
Brian Moore

The prototype v2 Companion Cube is the latest design production from Amateur science labs.  It features a base structure of 3 by 3 LEDs that can be controlled individually with only 12 pins.  The number of sequence possibilities are endless and can entertain you for hours.  It can blink, flash, strobe, and cheer you up when you are unhappy.  The color variations come in any color you want, as long as it is red.  The shade of the red LEDs perfectly accent the bread board, but really it just costs less.  Eight out of ten scientists suspect that it cannot feel pain, so you do not need to worry about dropping it or incinerating it in a deadly inferno.   We take the time to remind you that the cube cannot talk, but if it does, please disregard its advice.
