This looks really neat! I'm interested in hardware design but don't know where to start - any pointers/resources?

Just google Verilog and VHDL. There are plenty of resources online. The most important thing is to buy a board (any FPGA around the 20-50 dollars price range is more than sufficient), do not delude yourself that a simulator will teach you hardware. Hardware is brutal, you are limited by the laws of physics. Experience in stuff like Arduino etc. would help a lot. Otherwise just stick to Redstone in Minecraft if you are only interested in how things theoretically work.
