About this project

A plug-and-play LED Kit designed for stage design, visual art, and live performance. User-friendly and adaptable for structure assembling using aluminum profile. Simple and ergonomic.

 

LED by garageCube can be plugged together in any order and are auto addressable. A single cable carries both power and data, reducing connections to a minimum. Our LEDs are a perfect complement to madMapper, but are also compatible with third party applications and lighting desk consoles.

 

With madMapper, the most advanced video and LED mapping tool, you can easily set up from simple to large scale installations. You can use all kinds of content, such as video files, live feed, and generative images, to control your LED by garageCube.

 

Use your favorite MIDI controller for perfect live control. You can use all kinds of content including video files, live camera feeds, and generative images to control your LED by garageCube.

 

LED by garageCube will be available in RGB or pure white, and in two different sizes: 50 cm and 1 meter. Light diffusers and transparent covers are included in the Kit.

 

The 50 cm bar fits in your hand luggage. No need to check them in when flying. Sixteen 50 cm bars are lighter than 4 kg!

 

Thanks to their aluminum design, LED by garageCube is lightweight and solid. Attach them to your brackets with simple M4 fixing screws.

 

The bracket system was designed for the LEDs to allow assembly in multiple positions and orientations. Two mounting brackets per LED strut are included in each kit.

 

 

Our system is also compatible with standard fastening elements available on the market either directly on the profile adapted for hex head screws or on our bracket mounting system.

 

The system has also been developed to realize complex structures combining 3D printing or other tailored fabrication techniques, making any of your DIY creations possible.

 

For manufacturing, we benefit from the experience of our Chinese partner, with whom we have been working for many years on the production of custom-made LEDs. Electronic parts are tested through several quality controls to ensure optimal quality.

  

 

 

 

    

 

Boris has been active in the audio visual field for over 10 years. With his Swiss company garageCube, he created the software modul8 dedicated to live video mixing. Then, in collaboration with 1024 architecture, they created madMapper a software solution dedicated to video and LEDs mapping. After designing some installations and making custom-made LEDs specific to his projects, he met Alexandre and the need arose to create a more versatile product, more adapted and accessible to the community of artists and audiovisual designers in which they evolve. After more than a year of research and testing on small and large scale installations, they decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to make the product achievable and accessible to all.

 

- Co-creator of the software madmapper and modul8. - His activities and areas of expertise included: Software Design/ Stage Design/ installations/ Video mapping/ LED mapping/ AV Performances/ VJing/ Workshops

- Design, electronic and industrial IT background - Experienced in stage set and digital art installations

- Passionate about new technologies - Strong experience in team and project management - And lots of expertise in customer relationship management

Risks and challenges

More than 10 years of experience in the audiovisual industry and business, including client services and tech support.

We already manufactured prototypes successfully before launching this Kickstarter campaign
The molds for the aluminum profile and plastic injection are already designed and have been used for the production of prototype and can be reused for the final version.

We have established partnership deals with our manufacturer who has many years of experience with any risk that can occur in the production process.
