The Cubatron UV was built specifically for Burning Man 2008. It is a
3-dimensional array of Ultra-Violet LEDs, arranged in a 100x100x100
matrix for a total of 1,000,000 lights. Each light is independently controllable
to display any brightness and the entire display can be
updated 50 times per second.
The Cubatron UV currently runs a continuous loop of about 35 different
effects, lasting about a minute each. The Cubatron UV is interactive
and viewers are encouraged to discover their own unique effects. Some
of the better effects are known as vitamin-d, suntan and disinfect.
More radical effects such as sterile, cancer, and cataract are
too intense for some viewers.
Due to the brightness of the display
and the dangers of UV light, we do not recommend looking at it directly.
If you start seeing any purple spots you are probably starting to damage
The Cubatron UV will be located out in the deep playa. It will not be
visible at night. Look for it if you dare!
The Cubatron UV is based on earlier versions in the Cubatron series.
