PatternCraft – build with punchcards in Minecraft on the Raspberry Pi

Gemma May Latham has been looking into ways that Minecraft can be used to explore artistic uses of textiles. With help from David Whale (co-author of the excellent book Adventures in Minecraft) she built a punchcard reader that is powered by an Arduino. The punchcard is fed into a slot in a laser-cut box, the holes are ‘read’ by the Arduino then the data is pushed through to the Raspberry Pi where it is converted into a CSV file and then fed into Minecraft Pi Edition. Lovely project, Gemma! Read more here.
