## 16-Year-Old Creates Scientific/Graphing Calculator In Minecraft160

New submitter petval tips another amazing Minecraft project: a functioning scientific/graphing calculator. "On a virtual scale, the functional device is enormous — enough so that anyone in the real world would become a red blot of meat and bone staining the road if they fell from the very top. Honestly, his virtual machine looks more like a giant cargo ship ripped from a sci-fi movie than a working calculator. Yet type your problem out on the keypad, and the answer appears on a large white display mounted on the side of the monstrous brick structure." The creator says it can do "6-digit addition and subtraction, 3-digit multiplication, division and trigonometric/scientific functions ... Graphing y=mx+c functions, quadratic functions, and equation solving of the form mx+c=0." We've previously discussed the creation of a 16-bit ALU in Minecraft.

Calculating something that said '5318008' would have been so much cooled. sigh.

Seriously, this is simply freakin' awesome! Nice job, MaxSGB.

Now the challenge is to go back and recreate Minecraft for your TI 82. Then try creating a graphing calculator within that.

The thing to be noted from this is that Minecraft is an easier IDE to use than Eclipse.

I have a truly remarkable rebuttal to your argument that your mind is too small to contain.
