Real–Life Redstone Lamp Replica Controlled by a Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Christopher Thompson shares this real–life redstone lamp replica via Hive76:

Early in my gameplay in Minecraft I began making redstone contraptions. For those that don’t know Minecraft, you can use resources in the game to make analog electronics. People have extended this feature to build entire working computers all in redstone logic in Minecraft.

I only used redstone to make traps and novel machines, but the strong connection between redstone and electronics led me to imagine extending these machines out into the real world. I figured the easiest thing to make was the Redstone Lamp, pictured to the right. The redstone lamp is a block that will provide light when powered. My real life replica redstone lamp does the same thing. It lights up when a redstone lamp ingame is lit up.

See how it’s done here!
