Learn about electricity, circuits and electronics using Minecraft Redstone! Redstone components like levers are just like switches on real-world devices and Redstone dust is laid down in the game like electrical wiring.
Discover how to use Redstone to create virtual logic gates, resistors, transistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, and sensors. Use these along with other components like pistons to build amazing mechanisms and self moving machines!
