SUBJECT: Chiseled Bookshelf Redstone Idea

Hi Pix and Joel, 

I had an idea for what I think would make for more interesting redstone interaction for the chiseled bookshelf. I do think that the redstone output reading which slot was last interacted with is an interesting prospect, but now that we can interact with specific slots within the chiseled bookshelf I was wondering, what if the redstone output was based specifically on which slots had books in them?

For example, the first slot would give 1 redstone power, the second gives 2, and so on until the sixth slot gives 6 power. So, if I have books in the second, third, and fifth slots, then a comparator would read 2 + 3 +5 to give a total of 10 redstone power. Of course, this can lead to multiple combinations of filled slots, eventually hitting the limit of 15 redstone power. I think this leads to more interesting options for what can be done with the block for redstone purposes like combination locks with a single block to interact with.

Kokorodaki died from math.
