An Observer is a Block Update detection Block in Minecraft. If there is a Block Update in front of the Observer then it will give a Redstone Pulse. A Block Update is described as a change in Block or Fluid State. Some examples of these can be Plants Growing, Rusting of Copper, Placing or Removing a Block, the flow of Water or Lava, etc. This block helped the Minecraft Redstone Community a lot by reducing their builds to a fraction of the size. It is an important block in the game and here is the Observer Crafting Recipe.

    • 6 Cobblestone.
    • 2 Redstone Dust.
