Rainbowduino programming

I’d like to control a Rainbowduino board and Seeedstudio LED cube kit from a computer, without an Arduino board. Is this possible using techniques similar to what the mtXcontrol program does to control an LED matrix? If so, what cables would I need to purchase?

Thanks for the information!

Good question! Actually we don’t have such experience,either.

Yes, the easiest way is to use the UARTSB from Seedstudio. It plugs into the Rainbowduino and gives you a USB serial connection to the board. You can control it using techniques from mtxcontrol, or the MeggyJr-compatible library (code.google.com/p/rainbowmcompat/) has some serial port control examples.
