The $1.99 Minecraft Reality app lets users upload their Minecraft creations and place them somewhere in the real world.

Other Minecraft Reality explorers can then find the objects, whether they be placed in offices, in houses, on city streets or in public gardens.

Also emerging from the French convention was news of a Minecraft build made especially for Raspberry Pi, a mini-computer intended for school use, and its Minecraft edition will help players learn how to code and develop for themselves; a new Minecraft update expected January 2013 is to better help players construct mechanical circuits within the game itself.
