    Have anyone made something like Minecraft with Minecraft?

    The thing that strikes me about that project, having worked with redstone before, is just how compact it is.  Even simple 1 bit memory cells in redstone are massive.

    complete with sticky pixels!

  4.  I think someone did a simple computer with Minecraft. So then Minecraft  could be ported to run on Minecraft. And then before you know it, you have the video to Bjork’s ‘Bachelorette’

    This really F’d with my head when I first saw this thing on YouTube via reddit.  From what little I knew of Minecraft, I thought this thing was entirely “mechanical” (as in working like a giant abacus on steroids with gears, etc. performing the computational tasks).

    Just as my mind was starting to meltdown trying to grasp how that was even possible on this scale of computation, someone on reddit graciously explained the redstone in the game.

    It was bittersweet, because the sense of awe and wonderment was diminished a little bit, but I was also relieved to know that my struggle to comprehend this thing was valid in the context of what little I knew of Minecraft.

    All in all, it was exhausting!  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still very impressed with this thing, but damn…  it was destroying my brain when I thought it may be all mechanical somehow.
