Minecraft Madness: scale Enterprise and 16-bit ALU

, , on September 28, 2010

More Minecraft stuff that makes a burning house look lame in comparison (no- it wasn’t already lame!). I really have no interest in the game, but the things people make are neat. Sort of weird though; why don’t the people making this stuff do it in real life? It probably has something to do with human psychology and virtual reality and just the right balance of tools and limitations. Nothing against them, I’m sure they are very bright people, but a computer and a model of a fictional spacecraft would both be great things to have on my desk.

The Minecraft computer video indirectly introduced me to two books which seem highly recommended if you like computer science (me, not so much):
