Alright, /diy/, recently, my partner and I came across a local appliance store being demoed and decided to check it out. It had already been ransacked like the zombie apocalypse hit, but it was a pretty interesting building (an ex-grocery); sorry that we hadn't a camera on us at the time, and that our cellphone cameras suck. A friend of ours got a new dishwasher with æsthetic damage for $20, but we were more interested in the office spaces at the end of the building, and came back with some free hardware.
The first thing acquired is this thin client probably from around 2008; its specs can be read here >http://www.buy.com/prod/neoware-capio-504-dts-1-x-geode-gx1-300-mhz-ram-32-mb-hd-none-lan-en/103

Alright, so for my senior project we decided to tackle creating a 8x8x8 Cube of RGB LED's.
These LEDS will react to music, like the visualizations in windows media player.
Looking at what we will have when we end up presenting the project, we may only have a plane of 8x8 completed. But the proof of concept is there.
We have been looking for ideas on visualizations in this size, and how we are going to implement them.
If you've looked at an equalizer, you may not have realized you are looking at the frequency spectrum of the input. the frequency spectrum simply shows the magnitude(height) at different frequencies. This is what we plan to have available to run the visualizations.
Here is a photo of a complete cube someone else has done: http://hacknmod.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/512-led-cube1.jpg
One idea we have had is a strobe that looks at the magnitude of bass frequencies for a red color, and the rate of the changes for the speed of the strobe. The magnitude of treble frequencies could control of brightness of the LED's.
What other ideas can you guys come up with that would look good on this kind of display? Try to explain how it would work, so we can get a better idea of what you are trying to explain.

so, /diy/ i don't know if it is right to post this here, but i want to get some kind of cable, like the one in the picture, but no jacks, only cable.
it must be red like that, and be suitable for headphones.
