Synopsis

Make: Minecraft to Maker Redstone in Real Life by Paul Gentile

Minecraft is an incredibly popular game with young people and adults. Its open-ended nature encourages exploration and creativity. Teachers and schools have adopted it as a educational tool, and Microsoft has started an initiative called MinecraftEdu to support it as a tool for educators. One of the types of blocks found in Minecraft is called redstone, and it acts as the Minecraft equivalent of electricity. Within the game, players can use redstone and other components to craft contraptions that work like real-world electronics. Make: Minecraft to Maker: Redstone in Real Life is a fun how-to guide for taking those Minecraft creations and re-creating them in the real world using electronic components such as breadboards and wires, LEDs, motors, 555 timers, resistors, and more. Each project can be completed without any previous knowledge of electronics or circuits. Minecraft to Maker will walk you through the redstone version of each project, explaining what makes it work, and then you will learn how to build it in real life! Each project is illustrated in full color, with step-by-step instructions so that you can learn how to craft just as easily in real-life as in the game.
