Build A Programmable Piano in Minecraft

Crafter FVDisco's autopiano is massive, complicated, and really very charming.




Since its release last year, Minecraft has sold over mobile platforms [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/110992-2-5-Million-Miners-Buy-Minecraft]. If you're ever tempted to ask yourself why or how a game that consists solely of moving boxes around became such a phenomenon, this video presents at least part of the answer: You can make just about anything in Minecraft.


Case in point: FVDisco's shiny new autopiano, seen here playing J.S. Bach's Air on A G-String. This impressive structure uses crafted versions of standard "piano rolls" (as used in real-world autopianos) to create simple melodies across a full piano keyboard. The result is in turns charming, impressive and, well, really cool.


For more insanely complicated and sweet creations from FVDisco (including a music sequencer and a slot machine), check out their Facebook page [http://www.youtube.com/user/FVDisco].

Of all the things people make in Minecraft, we could have had, like, eight different kinds of cures for cancer; two of which bringing about the apocalypse.

Holy shit, even though I don't care much for Minecraft, I have to admit this is awesome. You know what would be cool with this? If someone programmed it to play this song...

Minecraft: No matter what you build, there will always be someone better at it than you. :(

I wonder how long it will take for someone to program Conway's Game of Life in Minecraft and have it become conscious and take over the Internet.

I know the feeling! I didn't even get that far, I just got as far as a bridge that pops out of the side of the wall and retracts after 5 seconds.
