I recently noticed a curious thing at a construction site I pass every morning on my drive to work. Out of the corner of my eye, at first it went by in a blur.





Could it be? No. No, surely I must be imagining things. I did just say that I haven't been playing Minecraft recently and I need to find some time to get back online soon.





Wait no. Am I dreaming? Is this real life?





AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

Amazingly enough, I just ordered two of these:


That is an amazing find though Brad!

Oh yeah, one of these:

The seed is a nice big Mesa Biome, so that was cool of them to do.

I saw that 709 had posted and wondered aloud whether he had just checked the seed... and indeed....


While perhaps less cool, it would have been nice if the seed was their phone number...

Even though I'm not a Minecraft junkie, I've got to say that's pretty genius marketing/promotion.

Did the idea come from the client or the developer?

Wonder how much real world work gets done on office computers versus virtual construction.

Maybe they prototype all their development work on their own MC server?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Stop by and interview the relevant parties and sell the story to WIRED or various Gamer mags/sites/etc. More Promo for them, $/£/€/Bitcoin for you.

All those who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand.

I got my toys in today. I love the torches and the ore blocks are great too!

My biggest complaint about the torch is that the light is far too yellow/green. Otherwise, pretty spot-on.

You have a set of them (or at least one)? This is an HDR image and there is green light coming out of Beast so this image isn't a great representation of the coloring. It's also from my iPhone 5S.

You just need to swap out your texture/resource pack.

Or maybe adjust your color profile.

Admittedly, it's been a while since I've turned mine on; it's mounted on the wall to my right. Powered off, the coloring is just right; however, when I turn it on, the orange tint is mostly lost - it looks too 'yellow'.

I have both ores on my desk, too. No torches, though.

I need to get the ores. And the diamond tools - all I've got are iron. (I do have most of the action figures, though.)

Does anybody have some melon?



Seriously though, what else should they make?
