I always start out thinking "this one is going to be soooo tidy. "

 

a few minutes later, I have a rats nest and I can't be bothered to clean it up. every time.

I know, the organization of the circuit is so much cleaner than what I was doing then... or now.

@Phononscattering: LED cubes are so 2009...

You're joking, right?  I was looking at a YouTube video of a 16x16x16 RGB LED Cube just yesterday evening and I was positively drooling

Keep it up, Kinsi55. I totally agree with Tim W.

I also think Kaleb should be thanked for showing tallent that is growing within the comunity. I hope the next stage for Kinsi55 is a good idea and a well funded Kickstarter project.

Lighten up detractors.

And what's wrong with 2009?  (grin)  The builder was all of 15 when this was done!  Construction like this takes experience that's usually not so much learning by doing, but by UNDOING, at least it has been for me (especially learning to work on my Jeep).    

Learning to solder and wiring a breadbaord are common skills needed by every generation.  Programming has begun with "Hello world" since before Kernigan and Richie, and it's still there.  Us with years or decades of experience need to encourage beginners to experiment and celebrate legitimate successes.  Besides, who hasn't had days when keeping the smoke in the parts, let alone making LED's blink is a good day?.

Keep it up, Kinsi55.

So what is more modern in your opinion? I don't disagree that LED cubes are old, but they're always fun to look at.
