NOTICE

Are you sure you want to report this?

When you are making your redstone suggestions, please note that Java and Bedrock will not have the exact same the same redstone systems - this would require redoing redstone system completely on one platform or the other. The two systems are functionally different and are going to stay that way. Please be sure to tag your suggestions with (Java) or (Bedrock).

Reintroduce Cogs as "Vertical Redstone"

    It's difficult to imagine a redstone signal activating a cog.

    If there was a block that sits flush to the floor that has a gear poking out the top (or any direction) then that could be powered and represent the starting point for a cog chain. The block could be called a gearbox.

    That is the system input. What about the system output? Where do the cogs go? This is where my imagination falls blank. How is rotational energy used in minecraft?

    Use essentially a modified piston, or as SpawnLegacy000 said, a "gearbox" to start it turning, and a modified pressure plate, to take back out a signal. The way this "gear switch" would work is that a little pokey-outey-thing would hit a bump on the pressure plate and produce a Redstone signal. Also, to make this not incredibly OP, like most vertical Redstone ideas, It wouldn't be instant. The gears would need time to turn and hit the pressure plate.

    If Emmet8random is suggesting a DC to AC converter then it sounds like the realistic way to do it, other than a repeater clock of course...

    Would be great if the cogs were able to be placed underwater.

    Also for the input and output, literally just make it so that the middle of the cog has Redstone in it with something like a wire connecting the Redstone to the cog, this wire would be under the cog.

    I personally hope this can become a possibility someday, it would make Redstone contraptions so much more simple to work with and if Cogs can be used underwater it would open up the possibilities of underwater builds much more.

    Great idea. I was gonna write a new suggestion about that exact topic but saw yours and voted instead. 

    Please add this feature Mojang...
