Minecraft reality

After spending countless hours perfecting your massive mountain cave or 14-floor skyscraper in Minecraft, you probably want to show it off to your friends. But, if you have friends like mine, they're likely going to destroy your buildings if you share the world file with them.

Minecraft Reality is the perfect solution for people who don't want to risk seeing their structures destroyed or pay for expensive 3D printing. 

This app can upscale your creations and place them in real-world scenarios, and it's actually officially endorsed by Mojang, the developers behind Minecraft. The downside is that only newer iOS devices can utilize the app, so you'd need to have an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, new iPod touch, or a 3rd or 4th gen iPad. But, if you do own one of those devices, Minecraft Reality will only set you back $1.99.
