Have you ever played Minecraft for so long that you start seeing the outside world as a series of blocks that can be manipulated at will to create all sorts of fantastic constructions? Well, the folks at 13th Lab are trying to give us the next best thing with a new augmented reality app that lets users see what our Minecraft creations would look like if they existed in the real world. The new Minecraft Reality app, now on sale for $1.99 in Apple’s (AAPL) App Store, “maps and tracks the world around you using the camera, and allows you to place Minecraft worlds in reality, and even save them in a specific location for others to look at.” A video demonstration of the app is posted below.
