This is a great example of how to have fun when learning to program Netduino. Yes, a Netduino is total overkill for this project, but you won’t be saying that after you come up from a long day of mining and are attacked by monsters!
Ever since I downloaded the MineCraft Canary for my Android, which lets me know what time of day it is on the surface, I wanted to make an electronic version using LEDs. I am not yet skilled enough to make a version using just electronic components from scratch (you know – the oldfashioned way with soldering and stuff), so I thought “Why not use the netduino?”
The Maker Shed has Netduino’s back in stock!
