This Incredible "Real" Minecraft Game Only Uses Two Blocks

On display at the XOXO Indie Arcade event in Portland, this Minecraft project has only two blocks. But they're real, you can touch them, and if you use the included hammers, you can smash them and they react in much the same way they do in the actual game.


If you're wondering how creator Ben Purdy achieved the feat, the visuals are projected onto the cube's surface.
