Designer, developer and YouTuber "SethBling" published a pair of videos this week showcasing how he's manipulated the building blocks of Minecraft to construct a working in-game Atari 2600 emulator.

Devs familiar with the inner workings of either Minecraft or the Atari 2600 will appreciate this significant technical achievement, which SethBling showcases in one video (embedded above) and then picks apart in a more technical breakdown video.

This is the latest in a long line of remarkably creative Minecraft constructs, including (but not limited to) a working Verizon smartphone (which SethBling helped build) and the entirety of Great Britain.
