If you are a big Minecraft fan you might like this board game display at San Jose State University that allows visitors to play Minecraft in real-life without the need for a computer at all.
The Minecraft board game is constructed of little paper cubes and even has tiny paper tools to help you with your constructions. Like the digital version, rare ore can be found underneath the surface with a little digging. It was also observed that already experienced Minecraft players that played the paper version, interestingly would go for the rare ores first, whilst new players would construct things from dirt, paper cubes.
The finished result was an art project by Jeffrey Kam and Cody McCabe:
“The true scale of the blocks is meant to put players in the game. It highlights the awkwardness if objects from video games in our world. As you walk in the gallery, the first thing you notice is how huge the blocks are. Even those who were extremely familiar with Minecraft were surprised at how large the room felt in person compared to their computer screen. It was a strange transition.”
