    Anyone else see this? I think its genius. I think Minecraft is one of the best things that has happened to the gaming industry in a long time.

    Its so cool to see so many kids interested in something that fosters creativity and innovation. Then to see third party companies create stuff like this, where kids can learn engineering principles while playing the game. Freaking awesome.

    Cool. There are actually some cool opportunities to learn about electronics in the base game as well. I once built a 16 bit adding machine, though it was the size of a small city.

    Yeah I love the Redstone stuff. Only drawback is that there is only on/off, no concept of voltage
