Minecraft skin scanner
Software development company 57Digital Ltd, are pitching their new mobile app to 10,000 people this Friday.
The company is official partners with Mojang, the creators of Minecraft. They will be running a workshop where youngsters can create a character exactly how they want it to appear in the game. The main premise is that they will create it on paper first using coloring pens rather than simply coding the design straight into a game on a computer. Once they have created it, it will be scanned from the “real world paper drawing” and then it will be playable as an actual character in the game.
The event is hosted at the V&A Museum in London on the 30th August 2013 at 6:30 p.m. until 10 p.m, and will host a range of Minecraft related activities.
There is no word on whether this is going to be released to the public, however if it is, it will open the flood gates of creativity to the world of Minecraft players. Whereas before only people with a good understanding of computers could create new skins, with this app literally anyone could create a Minecraft character skin of their choosing and upload it to the game.
If you are attending the event let us know how you get on, we would love to here from you and you may even get featured!
