Here’s what playing Minecraft inside Minecraft looks like

We’ve all taken on some strange and wacky pet projects during lockdown, but YouTuber Fundy appears to have taken this to new extremes, as he’s created a video showing himself playing Minecraft inside Minecraft. You can practically hear the Inception music blaring.

As demonstrated in a video on Fundy’s YouTube channel, he was able to play Minecraft within Minecraft in real time, along with playing Pictionary and surfing the web. In one particularly trippy moment, Fundy used his webcam to broadcast a live image of himself in Minecraft blocks. In essence, he was able to stream his computer monitor into Minecraft, rendered via thousands of blocks.

So, how was this technological marvel achieved? Fundy says he ran a separate server coded in Node, which allowed him to record his entire monitor and convert all the pixels into RGB colours. The program then compared these to the closest colour available in Minecraft blocks, then sent the data to Minecraft via a WebSocket. Then, finally, a couple of servers in Minecraft would deconstruct the code and make sure it corresponded to the appropriate blocks.
