Hey guys, This is a Redstone computer I'm building.

The computer is an 8-bit 8-register machine.
It has also has 64-bits of Video Memory driving an 8 X 8 piston display.

Much more information coming soon !

Additional Notes

Feed back is very welcome...
Thanks again guys!

Hey, wanna do a collab series? By that I mean we make parts (RS nor latch arrays, binary decodes, etc.) of our own, compact them down, and put them together?

Sure do !

I've been working with a team for months now on a ray-tracer based Minecraft clone.

But I've also been busy out in the world, I've somehow managed to work my way into a really good job ( the kind where you get payed to play Minecraft in your office while eating fresh free food ) so I've been making an effort to keep that.

Thanks for touching base CNC, it's always a pleasure to hear from you.

I have a good understanding of redstone, yet I understood barely anything of this. So it's a computer that stores memory, within my computer, and it has robots. Is this tekkit? Ftb? Or did redstone finally advance to the point to create mobile robot droids?

Yeah the computer has lots of memory and is built using conventional vanilla-Redstone.

The robots are for designing and engineering, they help me to build and test the device.

The droids themselves come from the mod ComputerCraft.

Information processing has a lower bound on complexity beyond which any idea can be represented and anythings posible.

I hope you understand what this thing can do one day. Try researching computational universality.

ok i have returned with considerably more knowledge on CPUs then i used to have and i am going to finish one of the redpower ones i started. I have worked with some 8 bit CPUs on breadboards irl now and i believe i can create the likes of one in game. hopefully if all goes to plan it will be able to do some simple programs and such

Awesome job :)

How are the robots programmed to avoid obstacles? Is it a function of the mod, or something more complex?

Does the screen use something similar to my framebuffer idea? It's awesomely compact if so.

Congrats on becoming a master princess.

Thanks Casey : ) The robots accept behavioural instructions in the programming language Lua, initially; the robots possess only basic functionality in programs such as 'turn left' or 'move forward'... I rewrote these basic maneuveral programs to include internal state; this allows the robots to keep a track of there own location and orientation. The next step was to write a navigation program; essentially a system which compares a robots internally calculated location to a target and then takes basic actions ( such as turn / move ) to reach said target. Obstacle avoidance was trivial to add once this framework was in-place; if a robot cannot decrease the distance from its target then it will push that target onto a stack and attempt to reach a new target which allows it to reach the previous target ( this process continues recursively ) Behaviourally, this all means the robot will move Around solid blocks and mobs, it can even navigate complex unfamiliar cave networks.

The screen has a write-only pixel bit-plane buffer with 6-bits of 1-bit address space.
It is therefor much less powerful then your Red-appes frame-buffer by specifications.
It essentially only allows you to set / clear pixels. ( I spent a quite a few hours compressing the design; just to find out that properenglish has released a design which is so amazing similar that it made the work all but redundant ! - althogh I think mines a teeny tiny bit smaller )

Thanks for the congrats, yeh I know I've gotta pick another class : )

Wow, awesome way of navigating the robot! I gotta make something like that with an in-robot neural network, and see if that's what it eventually develops to do. Thanks!, you gave me an idea that could make neural nets practical in minecraft.
It's still an awesome screen, and everything is insanely aesthetic as usual.

It's a functional computer, no single block can be removed without breaking the entire system. So it's definitely not just for show.

I feel redundant asking this, but what exactly can this be used for? I understand 8-bits and 64-bits pretty well, but I doubt you could play Castlevania on one of these.

of course not! but it is a fun thing to do in your spare time and these things can actually do things like display sprites and soon they might even be able to take those sprites and incorporate them into a 2.5D game!

Interesting, but what do you mean by soon? Is there a feature necessary but not yet implemented? Are people still figuring out how to do this stuff? Anyway, I always wondered just what you could accomplish with one of these, so I must ask: Will we ever have Minecraft computers capable of running, say, Doom?
