[edit] Uses

The basic function of a piston is to push a block forward one space. This item is more useful in redstone circuits. The default state of a piston is "off" and in this state it's retracted. It will only "push" blocks when given a redstone signal, and will remain in the "on" state so long as it receives the signal.

[edit] Opacity

Pistons are blocks with Opacity. Blocks with Opacity are not "fully complete" blocks or have transparency. For some of these blocks, it may not be possible to place other types of blocks directly onto them. Blocks with Opacity are as follows: Water (Source), Lava (Source), Tall Grass, Oak Sapling, Birch Sapling, Spruce Sapling, Jungle Sapling, Red Mushroom, Brown Mushroom, Red Flower, Dandelion, Crops, Sugar Cane, Cactus, End Portal, Portal, Fire, Sign, Torch, Snow, Air, Enchantment Table, Redstone Torch, Redstone Wire, Button, Pressure Plate, Lever, Rail, Trapdoor, Redstone Repeater, Door, Iron Door, Bed, Cake, Fence, Ladder, Oak Wood Stairs, Spruce Wood Stairs, Jungle Wood Stairs, Birch Wood Stairs, Cobblestone Stairs, Bricks Stairs, Stone Brick Stairs, Nether Brick Stairs, Sandstone Stairs, Quartz Stairs, Stone Slab, Sandstone Slab, Cobblestone Slab, Bricks Slab, Stone Brick Slab, Oak Wood Slab, Jungle Wood Slab, Birch Wood Slab, Spruce Wood Slab, Nether Brick Slab, Quartz Slab, Farmland, Chest, Large Chest, Glowstone, Piston, Sticky Piston, Oak Leaves, Jungle Leaves, Spruce Leaves, Birch Leaves, Glass, and Ice.
