One of Minecraft’s more complex and interesting aspects is
redstone. At its most basic, redstone allows you to place a lever
or a pressure plate to open a door. At its most complex, redstone
allows you to create working calculators and massive automated
constructions. From locking doors to hidden traps to machines that
can be “programmed” to play songs, the possibilities
are endless. We’ll explore exactly what redstone is, how we
can use it, and the tools that are part of working with redstone.
We’ll also look at some projects, breaking them down step by
step, so that you can see redstone in action. Soon you’ll be
using redstone with ease!
