…pure awesome in Minecraft, that’s what. The following video demonstrates a fully functional 16-bit ALU built out of “powered blocks” and other tidbits in the “game” Minecraft.
There’s been a flurry of Minecraft attention lately, from this post by Alice that includes logic gates made out of powered stone blocks (also combination locks, and a link to the video above), and this one, highlighting art in Minecraft.
And then there was a recent post by Tipa, who says, “Every time I go to post about Minecraft, I end up playing Minecraft all evening.” That’s very high praise.
Update: I clarified what the video shows and how it fits with Minecraft.
