It's a fictional scenario where certain types of computation have an unfortunate tendency to break through the Other side. See Charles Stross.

Actually, I really wouldn't worry about it. It has been demonstrated that in specific contexts, including those in which robots sometimes fight giant malevolent bugs, computers can only breach extradimensional space if they are aesthetically sinister (Clevinger, 2009). Sinisterness is incredibly difficult to achieve with Factorio's industrial aesthetic, even using pipes.
Just, you know, make sure that you don't route any fluids near your complex combinatorics. Just to be on the safe side.

Ok, now I think the whole article is art in it's best form. So I moved it to Fan Art, but left a link in Show my Creations. That removes also the Sticky, which is kind of OK, cause some people find, that there are already too much sticky in Show my Creations.

User Interface, block Generation, and color

The 7 colored lights in 0.13 will be perfect.

The main problem is getting player input, it is quite awkward without mods.
Challenge accepted.

Unfortunately rotation was not implemented, because I am tired and this challenge a little bit boring.
But maybe I will come back to this task tomorrow :)
in order to manipulate the blocks, one would place a material dependent on what action they wish the block to take, for instance
  • Left = Copper Plate
  • Right = Iron Plate
  • Drop = Steel
  • RotLeft = Copper Ore
  • RotRight = Iron Ore
the blocks can be randomly generated by a continuous loop of chests (one for each piece) and the first chest it the only one connected to the wiring. The connected chest will generate a block dependent on the item currently inside using decider combinators equal to the number of block configurations
additionally, the blocks could be generated with 2 arithmetic combinators and a decider combinator, the first combinator being a +1 combinator against itself, also connecting to the decider combinator, so that it can find the upper limit, then translate that to the 2nd arithmetic combinator which subtracts the generator number from itself

the color used would be dependent on the number or item in use to determine the block type

That would be wonderful! Already can feel excitement and see a lot of fun!

That's (2^31) -1, right? Bit 31 is the sign bit isn't it?
