After more than a decade, Minecraft continues to be an outlet for creativity, and one fan showed off a set of Redstone toys made in the real world.
In mid-2009, an early version of Minecraft was released to the world. Few realize that it will become one of the highest-grossing video games of the decade, with totals in the hundreds of millions of dollars, with that number continuing to grow. The reason why it’s still going strong after all these years is because of the huge amount of creativity it allows, not to mention the fanbase committed to working on all sorts of projects, some of which sometimes while making the leap into the real world.
Reddit user hecbac submitted a short video showing a series of Minecraft box was made in real life. In the footage, hecbac spins a dial on one of the boxes, which activates a simple Redstone circuit and lights up each box. Another part of the video shows them creating a trap that, when a cardboard sheep passes through it, activates the lights. Finally, the clip ends with them demonstrating a couple of pistons and sticky pistons that they also built. It’s also not the first time hecbac has done something like this, with their profile showing similar works they’ve done in the past.
Redstone is a very powerful element that supports the creation of a lot of interesting gadgets and devices in Minecraft. It can be used to make something as simple as a door that can be opened with an off switch or something as complex as an amusement. Wordle in Minecraft it’s him. This is largely what gives the game its longevity. The world itself is huge, giving the player an endless and vast space to build some extremely complex structures. But the inclusion of Redstone has really enhanced knowledge of what can happen in Mojang’s title, giving players more opportunities to be creative.
It is for this reason that Minecraft has near limitless replay value, and apparently, projects aren’t limited to the digital space either. Many comments in the Reddit thread praised hecbac for their creative ingenuity in bringing something like Redstone into the real world. It will be interesting to see what they come up with next.
For Minecraft itself, it may be over a decade old by this point, but it’s one of the most played video games of 2022 by far, as of its current Skyrim. With so many possibilities inside and outside the game world, many fans will have a hard time envisioning a time when open-world blocky titles will no longer be relevant.
Minecraft available for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
