 +====== Radar ======
 +The **Radar** lets you gather information about what entities (players and/or mobs) are nearby. The information is a table of entity names and distances from the radar, with the option of also including relative coordinates as well. If power is provided and OpenComputers is used, a considerable amount of power is required to scan large areas. If ComputerCraft is used, there is a delay between scans.
 +===== Recipe =====
 +**NOTE:** The stone bricks used can be any type of stone bricks.
