Verizon Makes a Working Video Calling Phone in Minecraft [VIDEO]


CaptainSparklez, popular YouTube gamer and “Minecrafter,” uploaded a video to his channel yesterday titled Minecraft: Working Cell Phone w/ Web Browser and Video Calling. In the video, he discusses how Verizon had asked him to showcase a project they’ve been working on in the game ‘Minecraft.’ It was way cooler than anyone had expected.

The project adds a cell phone, and “service towers” into the game which the user can build and use. The phone can make calls, browse web pages (all rendered with in-game blocks), and the crux of the project: video calling. The phone can actually video call to a device in the real world, and a video exchange can be made between the Minecraft character and the receiver.

The project by Verizon can be found on its Github page.
