Matryoshka Computers: Minecraft Hardware

I'll not apologise for posting another Minecraft video. Because it's a thing of joy. Interrupting yet another late night playing the game (tonight I'm laying some nice flooring upstairs in my house, and checking out some newly discovered caves for much needed iron) was an email pointing us toward something that at least equals this morning's Enterprise model.

But I rather suspect it's for real. This looks extraordinary.
