You wanted a blocky, slow computer in your Minecraft. And here it is.

After movies emerging of people having created working CPUs and ALUs in Minecraft, Joystiq’s reporting that anyone can now download a CPU and take a gander at its block-based innards. Get the save file here.

The download includes a text file which tells you how to operate the machine with its various lever. Handy.

Do it. Why not?

    The red lines are wires that can hold an on or off state, there’s guides on how to build logic gates here:

    The CPU wont be useful for anything aside a bit of maths as its very basic and slow but its very impressive that he’s managed to put this together and I would imagine he’s probably learnt a lot. I’ve never heard of anyone doing this before. Why do it? Because he can!

    Heres a video in which he explains some of how it works:

    well i built a basic calculator with and and or gates, but this has far more appeal.

    I remember when the same was achieved in LittleBigPlanet.

    The ‘Create Your Own…’ genre is great for this.
