Here's A Real-Life Minecraft Block You Can Actually 'Mine'

Ben Purdy is a designer and technology artist who was working on a projection-mapping project when his brother mentioned that a projection sample looked a little like a Minecraft block. Inspiration thus hit Ben.

It appears that the projection device is within this box, putting an image on all six (or, well, five) sides. Purdy says that a piezo element connected to — what else — a good ol' arduino tells the computer when it has been struck, and then to change the projection.
