So I decided to make my first "ALU" in minecraft. After making it, I realized it was pretty pathetic, as the largest sum it could do was 6. However, after making it I searched for some other ones, and the were either huge, showed the sum in binary, or both. The one I made it pretty small compared to ones I've seen, and it has a 7-segment display. The are four inputs: two 1's and two 2's. It takes all the inputs and adds them. The possible equations are:
It takes any of these and displays the sum. It's pretty fast, too. This probably isn't even that great, but the other ones I've seen were just pathetic. Now for the pictures. Comments, whether positive or negative, are always welcome.
Maybe I should learn all this computer and calculator stuff, if it can be this small :smile.gif:
It's pretty easy. Just start with something simple and make things progressively more complex. The most difficult part is learning how to read binary; it may seem confusing at first, but eventually it will click and you'll find it to be quite simple. Just play around with redstone for a bit. It's quite fun! :tongue.gif: I wish you the best of luck in your future redstone adventures.
Just to clarify: I know this is a really easy build. I did it in about ten minutes. However, the only ones I could find were really pathetic, so I felt the need to put this here. Plus, someone new to redstone might see this and realize that things like this can be made easily. Not an amazing build, but I still felt it should be here.
