About this project

Introducing the amazing Avinto QUB

Meet the world's first fully assembled, Internet connected, interactive, programmable, full color, Three-Dimensional LED Cube! Your QUB arrives ready to run, right out of the box, with absolutely no assembly required.

Your QUB (pronounced "cube") features a clock that can be used as an alarm; a microphone for interactive visualizations that respond to music and sound; a speaker to alert you to any alarms; an OLED display which displays the time, date and settings; 512 Full Color LED lights and 3 buttons to control your QUB.

Your QUB arrives fully functional, with over 10 visualizations built-in, but is also 100% open-source and programmable if you choose to expand or modify the code.  Your QUB also uses WiFi to connect to the Internet to enable product updates and to respond to real events in your life such as Facebook, email, weather alerts and reminders.  It can even be set up to work with Amazon Alexa.

Technology

At the heart of the QUB is a WiFi Enabled Particle Photon which combines a powerful STM32 ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller with embedded WiFi.  Then we add 512 full color RGB LEDs (WS2812B) configured in an 8 by 8 by 8 cube.  This array of LEDs is surrounded by a dark gray acrylic case which is just dark enough to hide the internal components when the QUB is off, yet still translucent enough to enjoy the 3D effect when the QUB is on.  The base of the QUB contains a crystal clear 128x64 pixels OLED display screen and buttons so you can easily interact and control your QUB.

Team Avinto

At Avinto we believe that people want more and more high quality, electronic devices that are designed to enhance their lives. We also believe that people should not be satisfied with a less-than-stellar experience, and should demand to be wow’ed. Avinto was founded on the principal that we can deliver something better, something truly spectacular, to enhance the senses. How do we do it? Easy, we combined the talent of seasoned creative professionals with exceptional design backgrounds with the combined talent of seasoned programmers and engineers with a tremendous amount of technical skill. Everything Avinto does, is based on a core principle that if it isn’t cool, it isn’t worth doing!

What's in the Box:

  • Fully Assembled LED QUB (8x8x8 = 512 RGB LEDs)
  • Micro USB Power Cable
  • 2A USB Adapter (100VAC-220VAC Input)
  • Getting Started Guide

International Buyers – Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges will be the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to backing.

Risks and challenges

We have already designed and built several initial versions of the Avinto QUB and plan to take advantage of existing relationships with component suppliers. While some adjustments and enhancements are necessary before larger quantities of the QUB can be manufactured, we're confident that our prior experience will ensure that any bumps in the road will be overcome successfully.

While challenges may arise such as delays with sourcing of the components, PCB manufacturing and assembly, we've already established a strong relationship with a local PCB manufacturing company who has over 20 years of experience to minimize any risks and assist in quickly resolving any challenges.

We have also designed, manufactured and supported prior microcontroller based projects in the past, and are confident that if any challenges do arise, we will certainly be able to overcome them and make this a successful campaign.

Throughout the campaign and until every last backer has received their reward, we will continue to keep you posted on the project's progress and will work to minimize any impact on delivery.
