This guy has used minecraft and it's electric like red ore to create a fully functional 16-bit arithmetic unit. Now, beyond that, he's planning on creating RAM for it and, eventually, allow it to compile programming code. 
 Now I've seen some big things made in this game that are far beyond the call of duty, but this takes the cake. I'm actually kind of curious if anyone else in this forum has either made, or is making, some crazy contraption in Minecraft such as this.

I'm sure sex will improve his quality of life. We all know sex gets you places in life, instead of intelligence. Just look at... well, every celebrity.

I sensed a bit of OCD when he had to close every door behind him.

#8 Posted by gakon (1952 posts) -

This reminds me of the guy who made a working calculator in LittleBigPlanet, but more crazy.  Also how huge is this guy's beard

Well he didn't actually make the entire ship piece by piece, he imported the schematics from format that Minecraf could read.

@Lemoncookie01: No, but you could possibly play Dwarf Fortress in Minecraft should he get the compiling working properly

These videos are terrifying. I don't like the idea that I'm living amongst these people.

I honestly don't get people's fascination with this game. Even this I don't get. Is this actually going to turn into a functioning 16-bit computer, or is he just replicating how it looked? 

#19 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

Just wow. That's a feat.

Dude built a fucking logic unit with lego-like blocks inside a videogame. I would be offended if he WASN'T obsessive-compulsive.

It's a functioning piece of a CPU. A small piece, but still, impressive. 
 
Minecraft is Turing Complete, as those nerds say.

Even if he had made it entirely by hand, it still wouldn't even come close to comapring what this wacko in the OP has done.

This is the ALU, which is the advanced mathematics aspect of a CPU.  The part that does all the hard work essentially.  He's also planning to build the other pieces, such as local RAM (cache/registers) etc and eventually even a compiler portion too so you'll be able to use his Minecraft Computer to compile stuff written in other languages into Minecraft Computer Assembly.  It'll be slow, really, really slow.  But it will work.

And this is why I occasionally bother to spend time with other people.  So I don't turn into that guy.

I'm confused too. 
 
Sex is healthy as is relationships.  he may have been doing it in his spare time and he does have female/male partner(s) as well as friends.  So yes.  Sex can improve the quality of your life as long as you don't over indulge in it which is the rule for everything including Minecraft.

I'm not sure how building a computer inside a game is a better use of his time.

Could he eventually build other parts of a computer?  I'm sure that would take ages, but would it be possible based on this?

Eh, if it's a computer company like that and you have a proof of concept that is that out there, but still, you know, logical you could score a better job then you think. It proves that you have a full understanding of computing and that you can think outside the box.

Yes.   He could.  There are even LCD displays in Minecraft.
