16-bit Math Processor made in Minecraft

Posted on 30th Sep 2010 at 07:39 by Richard Swinburne with 24 comments

Are you listening, Pig?

Reddit user, 'theinternetftw' has uploaded a video to YouTube showing off his working ALU made in Minecraft from in-game redstone logic. Unfortunately, while it's a working math processor, users need to know binary to read the output since there's no crafting for LCD screen. Yet.

The video is long, but if there ever was a proper use of the term 'epic', this would be it.


Grab a cup of tea and a few dunky bickies before watching it below and hopefully you'll spot the introductory reference to have a gamely chortle as well.

Obviously much respect to the talent there, but is it just me or does he sound like he's from South Park?

Oh, and if you're not sure what Minecraft is and you can't be bothered to check out Joe's explanation in his Free Games I Like: Minecraft blog then you can check out the trailer below for a quicker explanation.


Do you play Minecraft? Let us know what you've been making in the forums.

It is definitely very impressive, and stupidly complicated, but I would say that this is the truly epic one.

That looks amazing, until you find out that he imported it instead of actually building it.

Ah I just read the post about it on RPS and it turns out this was imported as well.

Whatever happened to people toiling away for days on end to do these things? Kids these days....

I can see what he means.


So, it being imported. That means he didn't build it?

I must say, that at certain parts, it didn't really sound like he knew what he was talking about.


And, I can't see any point for this.
Why would anyone want a computer, inside a computer game, inside a computer?

Wait so does this also mean that it is possible to build a physical replica of this. It would be crazy to see a non electric computer in RL.

I found the to scale model of the Starship Enterprise impressive. Funny and impressive what people are making with that game.

I think this is rather neat actually, huge waste of time but still pretty neat.
tristanperry 3rd October 2010, 00:37 Quote
Wow, that's pretty cool.

As HourBeforeDawn says, a big waste of time, but is pretty cool nonetheless ;)
