As you should you, one of the biggest features in 0x10c (I'll just call it "Zero") is the DCPU 16-bit computer. I found a mod that's been out since December, 2011, called ComputerCraft which can be found here.
It includes the use of the scripting/programming language called Lua. You can use it along with redstone and multiple other mods. Here's a video to demonstrate it.
It may or may not have inspired 0x10c. In my opinion, I think it might have considering the fact it was highlighted on Minecraft Forum once. What do you think? Please post a reply :)
