A Nerdy Bit of Meta-Computation

While its not the Bellingham Review's typical net fodder, this video was just too good for me to pass up. A player of the popular Minecraft video game has sculpted and manipulated the game's landscape and in-game tool set to develop a functional 16-bit arithmetic logic unit. In short, he's created a computer inside a video game. Sure, it's relatively simple in function since it really can only add and subtract, but the imagination and ingenuity is still admirable in my eyes.
