I know, maybe you're asking yourself, "What are its practical uses?"

Actually, there's a lot of them...
First of all, other than doing cool stuff, the BWU togheter to the WDU are both really powerful and pretty much unstoppable weapons of mass distruction for minecraft worlds!
Talking about more constructive applications instead, self-replicating machines are the base of any type of self-building/self-assemblying structure;
the BWU_a itself is very efficient in building a facility composed by a single type of unit.
To have an idea of what I have in mind take a look my self-building underground facility, it works quite well, but the architecture it's based on has some serious drawbacks when the structure becomes too large! (in terms of evolution and in terms of computer lag)

But this will change... The technology contained in the BWU will lay the foundation of a new framework for these type of machines, research must still be done, but if it works I will be able to build machines capable of self-assemblying in any type of structure, and with no practical limits in size and computational capacity (i,e, the PC won't explode if it's too large XD)
Imagine things like an entire city that builds itself from one single block, maybe made always by the same templates, but with a really huge number of them and different every time it's generated, of any size you desire! things like this may be possible in the future thanks to BWU-like machines...

Interesting? See also the World Distruction Unit and the original Universal Modules!

Do you like the connected glass? Easy to see through it! Get the texture pack here

Beside how awesome the project is of itself, can I just compliment you on how amazing your presentation is? :D Great visuals to show it off!

Thank you very much, you're really kind!
To be honest my main tools for this project's presentation were Movie Maker and Paint XD
Anyway, I discovered that it was quite hard to clearly explain all the things a BWU can do, so I tried to do my best so that people didn't ask themselves "What the hell should this be???"
