Minecraft detector lets you scan objects with your eyes
Posted On July 13, 2021
A Minecraft detector has been developed by a German research group to let you scan with your fingers and a handheld camera.
The detector is based on the same principles as those used in a smartphone and has been created by a team from the University of Leipzig and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics in Germany.
The detector uses the same technology as smartphones, which are capable of detecting magnetic fields in objects.
But the team says the detector uses much less energy than smartphones, because it is able to operate with less battery power.
“This is the first time in the history of the world that we have made a portable Minecraft detector with this kind of power,” Dr Andreas Köhler, a lead researcher in the research group, told reporters.
“We were able to use the same principle of an RFID reader for this purpose.
The system can scan up to 100 objects at a time with a resolution of 1cm and use the sensor to analyse their magnetic properties, like how much energy is stored in the magnetic field of an object.”
In this way, it can be used to measure the energy storage of materials, and its application is already being considered for the next generation of mining equipment.
“Dr Köhl says the research is still in its early stages.”
The main goal is to provide a simple, affordable and secure way of accessing information from the Minecraft game that has been freely released to the public,” he said.”
With this system, the data is transmitted to the mobile device and is analysed by it.
This way, the miner will be able to be able detect the magnetic energy of the object and therefore extract the information.
“The detector, which costs €100 ($112) for a 12-month subscription, works by measuring the energy emitted by objects when they touch the detector and detecting the magnetic fields created by the objects.
In this case, the sensor will emit an RF signal when a object touches the detector.
When a player plays Minecraft, it uses the RF signal to generate an image of a piece of metal or a ball, which can then be analysed with the detector to detect the energy stored in its magnetic field.
This data can then then be transmitted to a mobile device, where the user can analyse the data with the app to determine the energy level.
The developers say the application is not limited to mining, but can also be used for the detection of toxic materials and hazardous chemicals in mines.”
Minecraft has a number of features which make it ideal for a mobile phone, including a simple interface, and a lack of complicated buttons to navigate through the game.”
This would allow us to measure and monitor the environmental impact of these substances, and even to use them as a source of diagnostic information.”

The detectors have been tested by mining operations and have not revealed any negative results, the researchers say.
