Redstone gives you the power to construct an endless number of possible machines, mechanisms, and devices. With redstone one can move more efficiently, send messages long distance, or even create games, but a redstone build doesn't have to be strictly practical to be worth building. The piston conveyor belt actually does move items along a given path and while it can be used to transport goods, it's also worth constructing for its own sake. Sometimes the intricacy of a machine alone gives it purpose.
How to Construct the Piston Conveyor Belt
This mechanism uses two sets of pistons to create a complex system of moving parts. It is not hard to build, but simple and elegant in design.
Step 1 Create the Piston Array
Step 2 Add Redstone Timers
Step 3 Create a Redstone Pulser to Power the Conveyor Belt
Step 4 Run and Test the Conveyor Belt
Now that you know how to build it, show us what you use the piston conveyor belt for by posting images or video of it on the community corkboard!
