So, how did it end up looking? Here's a short video:

As usual, the code is freely downloadable and the parts I wrote are licensed under the GPLv3. If you use it to create something, I'd like a heads-up. If you manage to get the portal sending stuff to the Nether in this multiplayer world, I'd really appreciate a patch, hehe.

Many thanks to Claude Schwarz, both for telling me about the E66 display as wel as giving me the STM32s I used, J63 who helped me obtain the displays I used and ofcourse Notch and crew for creating Minecraft in the first place.

Just saw this whole portal thing on thinkgeek and I must say this is pretty awesome. I really want to throw millions at your face just to have this.

Hi I just wanted to say me and my friends love the design :3 I was wondering would you mind if I built a few maby with some alterations for some of my friends ?

Ebay, just look for a replacement lcd for a Nokia 6210, E66, E75, N78 and/or N82.

This a wonderful project, I would like to know where I can get an LCD like this?

What a wonderfull waste of an LCD :) I love this project. You should sell the idea to Brando to make! I agree, it needs sound...

Nice work! But if you want it to really seem "realistic" you need to add speakers so it makes the creepy portal noise. Better add a mute switch, though if you are going to keep it on your desk :)

You sir, should market and sell these. I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Spectacular hack. Congrats. I've never played Minecraft, but I do respect a beautiful piece of code and hardware. It must look stunning on the office desk.
