Mineable Minecraft block – Hack a Day
A fun piece of augmented reality from Ben Purdy brings Minecraft to the real world with some clever projection kit. Projecting classic 8-bit graphics onto a cardboard box you can then take a stick and mine away the projected block.
Block animation is handled by a piezo sensor, an Arduino and a Processing sketch. From earlier posts on [Ben's] blog, we’re going to guess that he used the keystone video projection library his own solution to map the Minecraft block onto the cardboard box. Animation is handled just as in Minecraft – overlaying the breaking animation onto the block and adding some particle effects.
