below is code for the different installations.

the kube

controlling a 1x1x1 grid of fluorescent light tubes with an arduino microcontroller. the fluorescent light tubes gets power from a supply box built by nicolas padfield of illutron.
the electronics are designed by ucapps.de, basically 4 serial registers 74HC595, which means that this setup in theory could be scaled to any amount of outputs / fluorescent light tubes wanted.
