    If any of you play Minecraft, there is a blueprint for this that you can load in and actually walk through it.

    wow, agree w/CrakrJak
    The creator of that is a very bright and meticulous person.
    Don`t care who knows it I love minecraft.
    @SmilinSam it`s an open ended program that uses logic in which you need to survive. Notice I said program b/c it isn`t a game, there are no real objectives other than the fact that you need to stay alive to play (otherwise you drop all your stuff and it`s just a pain in the butt). It looks like junk but it`s appeal, at least to me, is the ability to build at will anything you please.

    @smilinsam because in the 80`s computers were generally crap...so game developers had to concentrate more on great gameplay rather than fancy bits of motion capture etc. most games these days are nothing more than the same gameplay of the early computer days but more levels and better graphics.

    Minecraft kinda harks back to that... the developer has concentrated on making it play great rather than look just look good.

    "what is minecraft? why are people so obsessed with a game that looks like it should have been made in the 80`s?"

    Graphics does not equal a great game.

    "Next up: a computer in minecraft that is capable of playing minecraft"

    Actually the same group that created this keyboard has also created a working Tic Tac To game and a working Minesweeper game. So its not that far off.

    "thats sofa king sad"

    Why is it sad? Does it not meet your requirement for a hobby? What do YOU do that is so much better huh? Oh I guess logic circuits are just not intellectual enough for you?

    Seems like a colossal waste of time to me. Of course I thought the same thing of "real" computers in the early 1980s... so who knows?

    Minecraft, like all video games, creates an illusion of accomplishment. Do people really gain anything of any real substance when they accomplish a goal in a game?
    That guy spent a lot of time and energy into creating this, but to what end? Eventually he`ll just get bored with it and it will have done nothing for him in the real world.

    Sadly you will miss the entire point to life because of your mindset.

    I`d love to watch this man cry in the fetal position while creepers blew the sh*t out of that retarded waste of time.
    Now, back to my favorite pastime.

    0_0 oh my. That is quite impressive. All of my redstone stuff eventually breaks down for some reason, I`ve always seen it as somewhat bugged.

    So I`m in it more for the architecture rather than the redstone.

    Anyway, lots of haters here.

    I`ll use my freedom of speech just as you used yours: f*ck all of you. None of you have any idea what you`re talking about.

    Wow. Never have or will ever play Minecraft, and computers are just a tool to me. But that, and the explanation, was awesome. I`m actually quite proud of myself for following him... now for part two.

    "Sadly you will miss the entire point to life because of your mindset."

    And what, pray tell, Corpsecrank is the entire point of life? Do you really think that you can extrapolate my `mindset` from a single comment on a board? How about you think about what you`re going to type before blindly lashing out.
