Verizon Minecraft Smartphone: Can You Hear Me Now, Steve?

Just when you thought Minecraft couldn’t get more complex, here comes a virtual smartphone that can go online and even call the real world.

The blocky phablet was made by Verizon, ad agency Wieden+Kennedy and the professional Minecraft craftsmen of BlockWorks. To make the smartphone work, they made an open source web app called Boxel. Together with a server plugin, Boxel lets you convert web pages and streaming video into Minecraft blocks in real time. The phone can also send a selfie of your avatar as an MMS. Minecraft superstars SethBling and CaptainSparklez beta tested the technology.

Now that’s a commercial. Check out Verizon’s GitHub page for more on Boxel.
