1 + 1 = WIN! Working calculator created in LittleBigPlanet

6:39 PM on 10.07.2008 // Chad Concelmo

Yay! Another person that makes me feel inadequate!

I have been fiddling around in the LittleBigPlanet beta for about a week now and have not even come close to creating anything this unbelievably impressive. PSN user Upsilandre has created a level in LittleBigPlanet featuring an actual working calculator.

Now, at first this seems kind of boring and almost shrug-worthy. But before you dismiss it, keep in mind that there is nothing in LittleBigPlanet that allows you to just easily create something that adds and subtracts numbers. Upsilandre constructed this ingenious gizmo using more than 1600 parts, including 610 magnetic switches, 500 wires, and 430 pistons.

Honestly, I can’t even begin to comprehend how he/she even attempted to do this.

What do you think? Are you impressed by the level of skill shown in some of these early LittleBigPlanet levels? Like me, are you embarrassed to even show your creation to the world now? What do you think levels will look like once the game finally hits retail (I may as well start hanging my head in shame now)?
