Minecraft Adds Programmable Block

Posted by | July 27, 2012

Consider for a moment that people have used the physics of Minecraft to create actual working computers inside the game. Sometimes with graphics. Now, the good folks at Minecraft HQ are handing these people a block that can programmed for effect to do various things. What things? We’re not sure, yet. The community will figure out something, though, you can be sure of that. Rock, Paper, Shotgun has the story.

    Back in the day, I thought Second Life would be the launchpad for the Matrix, the immersive virtual reality that everyone would jump on into. Second Life failed with poor netcode, an awkward interface, and an inability to keep up with the times.

    Minecraft, though… Just maybe.
