Redditor and father hahabird posted photos of the awesome life-size glowing Minecraft block he made for his son’s birthday. Since the blocks in the game are about one meter, he decided to build one side of a cube true to scale. Then he added color-changing LEDs which can be remote controlled. The entire project took about a week in his spare time and only cost $85 in parts and paints.
His son’s reaction was absolutely perfect:
“At 7 this morning: “DADA! This is super cool! Come see! It can change colors! Look: redstone! Diamond! Lapus lazuli!” A few minutes of sitting in front of it staring, interspersed with the occasional “Wow! Sooooo cool.”
Then he asked where I got it (he should really know better by now). “I made it.” “How?” So we looked through the album as I explained each step.
Now we’re eating cupcakes for breakfast, because birthday.”
Well done Minecraft Dad. Click below to see the entire DIY project gallery…
