Introduction: Learning Logic Gates With Minecraft

Picture of Learning Logic Gates With Minecraft

Logic Gates are a key component to making computers. They can be easily represented using minecraft's redstone feature. Using Minecraft is a great way to test electronics before physically making them. Here are the main types of logic gates:

NOTE: In the pictures, unless stated otherwise, the orange block represents the input, and the lamp represents the output. The input will always be off.

NOT Gate (Inverter): Inverts the signal; if the input is on, the lamp is off.

OR Gate: Any of the orange blocks can be powered to light up the lamp.

NOR Gate: If any orange blocks are powered, the output is off.

AND Gate: Both inputs must be on for output to be on.

NAND Gate: Both Inputs must be off for output to be on.

XOR Gate: One input must be on and the other must be off for it to send an output signal.

IMPLIES Gate: For the output to be on either Input A (orange block) must be off, or Input B (diamond block) must be on.

Thank you for reading this, it really means a lot to me. I worked really hard on this, then it somehow got deleted, so I had to redo it again.

Happy Crafting!

Arduino there is no category for redstone on instructables.

Redstone is Minecraft's style of electronics, but not electrical.

How is this related to electronics tip and tricks? electronics and redstone are different things!

It is a explanation of how the logic gates in real life work, but using redstone, so you are able to see where and how the eletricity works in the corresponding gates
