Ein Student namens Brett hat eine rund 12 Kilometer lange Bahn in Minecraft gebaut, deren Fahrt in Echtzeit eine halbe Stunde dauert. Ich weiß schon, warum ich dieses Game so selten starte, wie möglich. Sonst fange ich noch an, einen Todesstern zu bauen. Der Programmierer des Games (das ja noch nichtmal in der Beta-Phase ist! Muss man sich mal vorstellen!) hat übrigens neulich an einem einzigen Tag damit 350.000$ verdient. Und womit? Mit Recht!

Oben ein Timelapsevideo der Minecraft-Autobahn, Snip aus einem Interview:

One day a young art student named Brett started building a minecart rail in Minecraft, the beloved indie sandbox game, listening to podcasts as he went along. “I just started mining in one direction to see how far I'd go before I got tired of it or bored,” as he tells me. Thing is, he didn’t get bored. And after 22 or so hours of tinkering stretched out over a few weeks, he wound up with a course that’s 7.67 miles long. (“[I]f the Google converter is working correctly,” he notes.) Brett’s “Minecart Interstate” actually takes 27 minutes to traverse, but in a gorgeous timelapse video he made that was praised by Minecraft’s creator, Markus "Notch" Persson himself, you flow through his course in under four lovely, hypnotic minutes
