It never fails to blow my mind just how incredibly deep the game of Minecraft is. What on the surface seems like an adventure that’s all about exploring, crafting, block-building and survival has evolved into something that’s sophisticated enough people can build working computers inside the game itself. The world of iPhone games hasn’t been immune to the “can you make it in Minecraft" phenomenon, and we’ve seen versions of both Plague Inc. and Flappy Bird recreated inside Mojang’s masterpiece. However, this next one takes things to a whole new level. As noted by TUAW, a German Minecraft player has built a functioning iPhone-like device inside of Minecraft. Not only does the device “work" but it even has useable apps. Unfortunately, the following video is not in English, but I still found it impossible to turn off until I’d seen the entire 13 minutes.
So what’s next? An iPad? An Apple Watch? Maybe someone can create a full-scale version of Apple’s in-progress spaceship campus? Maybe an Apple Store where other Minecrafters can visit and purchase these Minecraft-made Apple products? Whatever the next crazy thing is, I can’t wait to see it as I absolutely love seeing people make things in Minecraft, for some reason. And just in case you weren’t aware, while it’s not quite complex enough to do this sort of thing in, you can still get your Minecraft on the go with Minecraft Pocket Edition ($6.99) which received a massive update a few months back that brought it much closer to its PC counterpart, and is worthy of a spot on your device if you’re a Minecraft fan.
