About: I like to make stuff.

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.

    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
