If you like building your own things, Instructables is a really useful resource for learning how to do it. Case in point: the 8x8x8 LED Cube 3-Dimensional display. Watch this video and tell me if that's not hypnotic:

We believe this Instructable is the most comprehensive step-by-step guide to build an 8x8x8 LED Cube ever published on the intertubes. It will teach you everything from theory of operation, how to build the cube, to the inner workings of the software. We will take you through the software step by step, both the low level drivers/routines and how to create awesome animations. The software aspect of LED cubes is often overlooked, but a LED cube is only as awesome as the software it runs.

About halfway through the Instructable, you will actually have a fully functional LED cube. The remaining steps will show you how to create the software.

The music in the video is titled Homeless by Absorb Projects.
