Hello everyone,

We would like to show all of you an invention we created using the new Observer blocks from the recent 1.11 update. A friend (Gr3atsaga) and myself were messing around a bit in our Redstone Test World, and found out quite a few interesting things about the observer block that by this point are probably common knowledge. However, what we found we could utilize it for became extraordinarily useful to us and we wanted to share it with all of the Minecraft community.

One of the most important things to us lately in our Minecraft survival world, has been the swift bulk transportation of items, however, like many of our fellow players, we had constant issue with finding a design which was ideal for both delivering 100% of the items and doing so at top speeds. A long time ago, we fixed one design to serve our purposes, but with this update, we soon found that the observer block was the salvation we were looking for. Using it to carry a signal, as well as work as the initial powering mechanism for the machine, we literally (without exaggeration) created an item transit system, that not only topped the speed of systems known to us, but also could be used horizontally (any direction) as well as vertically (both up AND down) and could be connected and turned in pretty much any way we could imagine. We fiddled some more with it to refine the system and created varying builds, so that just about anyone could build it regardless of their available resources in Survival Minecraft (with obvious limitations).

Without further ado, we would like to present, the Watchmen Pipeline.
We went as far as to create a major Minecraft Showcase on it, showing the varying builds and how to make a few of them, along with a world download link (all of which we shall post here as well).

We hope you all enjoy and find this extremely useful, as we have. Please do not hesitate to give us any feedback on our little invention, and we look forward to speaking with you all.

Kindest Regards, from Johnny Kayson and Gr3atsaga.
