linuxwrangler shares a report from PetaPixel: A programmer who goes by the name Turtius has managed to install and run a Minecraft server on a Canon SL2 DSLR camera. Turtius was working on reverse-engineering Canon’s network processor when he decided to try and see if it could be done. [You can view it in action here on YouTube]. It is important to note that the camera is just the server, not the client. The game itself is running on the computer, the “world” that is displayed in-game is simply connected to the camera. Theoretically, others could connect to the camera’s network and join this same Minecraft server via their own computer. […] The SL2 does seem to be at the limits of its capability, however, as Turtius says that it can barely make photos and videos in this state and sometimes will crash. He believes that if the camera processor were a bit more powerful, custom world generation could be supported. “It’s avrcraft,” Turtius explains on Reddit. “It’s fully running on the camera. I reverse-engineered the network module used by Canon which just so happens to expose Unix-like sockets and integrated avrcraft with Magic Lantern. It’s running a custom implementation provided by Canon’s operating system and using custom code to interact with the stuff provided by Canon on a lower level.” You can find the full source code here on GitHub. Just be warned that you could brick your camera if you try this yourself.Read more of this story at Slashdot.
