Building in Minecraft Pi with PatternCraft, #Arduino, and #Raspberrypi #piday @Raspberry_Pi

From Gemma May Latham via raspberry pi pod:

Following some initial explorations (see blog post here) into the links between textiles, code and Minecraft and a chance Twitter conversation, I have been lucky to get the chance to work with the amazing David Whale (Co-Author of Adventures in Minecraft) recently.

I love the social nature of Twitter and how it brings like minded people together.

One evening, the amazing suggestion of “I bet you could build a punchcard reader for Minecraft” leapt from a tweet from David.

Having been exploring links between process, data, code and weaving (punchcards in particular) through various projects, I was excited by this challenge. Also, having seen the power of Minecraft to engage kids through my work with Playful Leeds, I could see the potential to teach and pass on textile heritage through this medium.
