C8990: Inception! or, How to Build a Computer in Minecraft in Splash 2014 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2014)
Wanna make a computer inside a computer? Wanna build a calculator out of dirt, sticks, and magic red powder? Come learn about low-level computer architecture using Minecraft! Things you should know: We will explore the basics of computation in Minecraft, starting with logic gates and proceeding to building complex devices such as adding machines and memory storage modules. Depending on time and experience, some topics may include: Turing machines, alternative memory, random number generators, clocks. No Minecraft experience is required, but if you have a computer with the game on it, bring it so you can take what you make home. Those with experience building redstone devices are welcome as well; we’ll find a challenge for you! Specifically, we will be studying a system analogous to the multi-input NOR gates used in early computers e.g. the Apollo AGC.
