Is it possible to make it so I can have a controlled vertical opening?
I want to make something so that I have a stack of blocks and I can press a button and one falls through a chute, is this possible?
currently not really possible unless you did something like maybe a redstone which changes the direction of a water current which subsequently washes away a torch and then that makes some sand fall down
I remember someone did something like this with minecarts, restone, and a door. You set up the door so the minecart is sitting on top of it and once it receives redstone power it shuts. The cart then falls. Whether or not this works for other blocks is unknown to me.
Edit: Oh god! Just noticed Eve Online, lol. I mined then, I mine now.

Bellow statement is true.
Above statement is false.
You can have like sand on top of tnt with a pressure plate on top of both. The put water under it. Put torches on the tnt to support other sand. When you step on the plate, it activates the tnt and all the sand falls, but no envionmental damage because of the water.
