    Update, January/12/2018. According from three players in the comments.. It seems like The First Method or The Second Video doesn't do anything to help.. I remove it to save time.. If the Second Method or The First & Only Video doesn't work or anything. Please do let me know for me to update it as soon as possible when I find a replacement. Thank you and Good Luck on your Gamer Journey!

    Update, September/06/2019. It seems like 1 Video even though it did help many people.. It's probably best to put out 2 more videos for Inception Achievement.. Hopefully it allows more people to get this rather annoying achievement.. As usual.. Do your best, Stay calm and Continue your hunt for Achievements!

    Original Post, Edited on September/06/2019. As Lightsup55 mentioned. This Achievement could most likely be unlocked in Minecraft Version 1.2.3 or Later.. However.. Even as I closely followed his Guide to the very last step and The achievement never pop up.. I did a bit of research, And according from a information on Youtube... It says something like you got to keep repeating the Process.. Somehow...

    I got this achievement as October/19/2017 by following the Guide in this Video.. Here is The Video or URL (Down Below).. In the Video on Youtube, This is the Second Method of The Person who got the achievement and even though (Strangely).. He got it for Minecraft Pocket Edition. The Achievement on Xbox One has either way unlocked successfully with the Guide from Idk Productions on Youtube.. Please have a look.

    (Warning: The video could have a Loud Volume.. Recommend to lower your volume in your device just in case.)



    Note: The Video on Youtube or by The URL, Isn't really my Video.. It has been made by Idk Productions.

    Two more additional videos.. Hopefully they come in handy. Just in case like the first video.. Be sure to lower the volume.






    The 2nd Video is made from: therednaz on his channel.

    The 3rd video is made from: M&T GAME on his Channel.

    All three videos are not my own work.. Well that is all.. Hopefully you all can make the achievement pop as best you can.. Good luck and Do your best to continue your hunt for Achievements!

    For this achievement, you have to place a regular piston down then place a sticky piston in front of it so they are facing each other. On the side next to the regular piston place a lever down and pull it so the regular piston activates and pushes the stuck piston back. Press the lever again so the regular piston isn't pushed out. Now place a lever next to the sticky piston and pull it twice so the regular piston gets closer to the sticky piston.

    This achievement is only obtainable in Minecraft version 1.2.3 or later (stable and released to the public on October 18, 2017). If your game is not running the current version, you'll be prompted to update your game to newest version.

    If you have played Minecraft: Xbox One Edition (Console Edition), read below on how to sync your old worlds over to this new version.
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    The basics (assuming you have it):

    10 Redstone (approximately)
    1 Lever
    1 regular Piston
    1 Sticky Piston

    The achievement:

    - Look at the ground and place the Sticky Piston.
    - Walk to the left or right side of the Sticky Piston and turn around (180°).
    - Look at the ground in front of the Sticky Piston (piston is to your left/right) and place the regular Piston.
    - Both the Sticky Piston and regular Piston should be touching so that when either one expands, it will push the other.
    - Place a trail of Redstone on the ground about 3 blocks away.
    - Place the Lever at the end of the Redstone trail.
    - Press cn_LT, to turn on the switch.
    - The Sticky Piston is powered and expands, pushing the regular Piston away.
    - Break 1 piece of the Redstone trail that leads up to the Sticky Piston.
    - The Sticky Piston now retracts because power is interrupted, keeping the regular Piston attached to it. (this is due to the sticky surface)
    - Now make a new Redstone trail toward the regular Piston.
    - The regular Piston is powered on and expands, pushing the Sticky Piston away.
    Achievement unlocked!


    Note: If the achievement doesn't unlock right away, wait about 1-5 minutes.





    But what if you were starting a new world and you don't have the items pre-made listed above? Here is what you need:

    4 Wood (tree trunks of any kind)
    16 Cobblestone
    1 Slimeball (or 1 Slime Block; can be crafted into 9 Slimeballs)
    12 Redstone
    5 Iron Ore (or 5 Iron Ingots)
    Any type of fuel for smelting Iron Ore.


    The process:

    First, find a tree (yes, a tree) and punch it (mine it with your bare hand; cn_RT) to get a piece of Oak Wood. Or better, use any type of Axe if possible.
    Repeat this process again with another 3 more pieces of Oak Wood.
    Press cn_X to open the Crafting menu. Highlight "Oak Wood Planks" (or whatever type of planks for the type of wood you have) and press cn_Y to make 16 Oak Wood Planks using the 4 Oak Wood we obtained earlier.
    Now highlight "Crafting Table" and press cn_A to craft one. This will use 4 of the Oak Wood Planks we crafted earlier.
    Now highlight "Stick" and press cn_A to craft 4 Sticks. Press cn_A again to craft 4 more Sticks. This will use 4 Oak Wood Planks we crafted earlier.
    You should now have 8 Sticks.
    Now highlight "Wooden Pickaxe" and press cn_A to craft one. This will use 3 Oak Wood Planks and 2 Sticks we crafted earlier.
    Press cn_B to exit.
    You might want to consider breaking the Crafting Table (mine with cn_RT) so that you can take it with you. We will be using it again later.

    Find some smooth Stone (or Cobblestone) and mine it with the Wooden Pickaxe (or any other better Pickaxe) in hand using cn_RT. We need at least 16 blocks of Cobblestone.
    Look at the ground and place your Crafting Table down.
    Press cn_LT to open the Crafting Table.
    Highlight "Lever" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 1 Cobblestone obtained earlier and 1 Stick we crafted earlier.
    Highlight "Stone Pickaxe" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 3 Cobblestone obtained earlier and 2 Sticks we crafted earlier.
    Highlight "Furnace" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 8 Cobblestone obtained earlier.
    Press cn_B to exit.
    You might want to consider breaking the Crafting Table again (mine with cn_RT) so that you can take it with you. We will be using it again later.

    Here is the long and tricky part:
    ----- If you do not have 1 Slimeball (or 1 Slime Block), 5 Iron Ingots, and/or approximately 10 Redstone, continue reading this section. -----
    You need to bring 2 Sticks, 1 Stone Pickaxe, 1 Furnace. You might consider bringing a Sword too if you encounter other hostile mobs.
    You'll need to mine under ground, but never dig straight down.
    Some of the things you are looking for are Slimes (a hostile mob; will not spawn in a world loaded on Peaceful difficulty), Coal Ore, Iron Ore, and Redstone Ore.
    Kill a small Slime to obtain 0-2 Slimeballs.
    Iron Ore can only be mined with a Stone Pickaxe or better (e.g. Diamond Pickaxe).

    You'll need at least 5 total Iron Ore to make 5 Iron Ingots with a Furnace.
    Once you have collected some Iron Ore and Coal...
    Look at the ground and place your Furnace down.
    Press cn_LT to open the Furnace interface.
    Highlight your fuel (we're assuming that you'll be using Coal) and press cn_Y to quick move it to the fuel area (bottom).
    Highlight your 5 Iron Ore and press cn_Y to quick move it to the ingredient area (top).
    As soon as both the fuel and ingredient are in the Furnace, a flame will be visible and the smelting process will begin.
    The final product will made on the right. Once it is finished, highlight "Iron Ingot" and press cn_Y to quick move it to you inventory.
    Press cn_B to exit.
    Now that you have your 5 ron Ingots, we'll be using 3 of them immediately.

    Look at the ground and place your Crafting Table down.
    Press cn_LT to open the Crafting Table.
    Highlight "Iron Pickaxe" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 3 Iron Ingots smelted earlier and 2 Sticks we crafted earlier.
    Press cn_B to exit.
    You might want to consider breaking the Crafting Table again (mine with cn_RT) so that you can take it with you. We will be using it again later.

    Now go looking for and mine Redstone Ore.
    Redstone Ore can only be mined with an Iron Pickaxe or better (e.g. Diamond Pickaxe).

    The last part:
    Once we have our Redstone, we can finish the process. We only need 2 Redstone now to make the Pistons, the rest will be used as Redstone wiring.

    Look at the ground and place your Crafting Table down.
    Press cn_LT to open the Crafting Table.
    Highlight "Piston" and press cn_Y to craft using all materials we have. This will use 6 Oak Wood Planks we crafted earlier, 4 Cobblestone we obtained earlier, 2 Redstone we obtained earlier and 2 Iron Ingot we smelted earlier.
    You should now have 2 regular Pistons in your inventory.
    Highlight "Sticky Piston" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 1 regular Piston we crafted earlier and 1 Slimeball we obtained earlier.
    You should now have 1 regular Piston and 1 Sticky Piston in your inventory.
    Press cn_B to exit.

    Now you have a regular Piston, Sticky Piston, Lever, and enough Redstone to continue as explained earlier in this guide.
