Little Big Planet Calculator: You Do the Math

by Paul Strauss

Let me start by saying that I’m really looking forward to playing in the virtual sandbox of the upcoming Little Big Planet for the PS3 when it hits stores later this month. But I could never imagine building something as amazingly intricate as this.

PlayStation 3 fanatic Upsilandre spent countless hours building this incredible calculator using the Little Big Planet Beta demo. Check out this YouTube clip of the calculator in action:

The calculator can do basic addition and subtraction, as well as decimal-to-binary conversions. Upsilandre used 500 individual wires to connect 610 magnetic switches, 430 pistons, 70 emitters, and a bunch of other stuff to make the calculator work. Here’s a screen grab of just a small part of the “electronics” which sit behind the display.

Now he just needs to make it multiply, divide and calculate tips. Like I said, I can’t wait to get my hands on this truly unique game to see what sort of amazing creations the community comes up with. For now, I’ll just have to live vicariously through Upsilandre.
