There is a documentary online covering the creation of Minecraft.
For those not in the know, Minecraft is an internet and mobile sensation, allowing users to play in and create their own virtual 8-bit style worlds, complete with square trees, roving sheep, and lava pits. Or, whatever else you can think of. While many discounted the game as retro and simple, gamers of all ages soon linked on to the magic of “world building,” and so it continues, with Minecraft being used by millions of mobile device and computer users across the Earth.
And while it IS a game– the philosophy behind the game, and the path its creator, Markus Pederson, has followed, is not unlike that of any visionary movement. Worlds are built, and actions have a consequence. Forget to take care of your livestock, and they die. Forget to fortify your house and the mysterious and deadly “Creepers” will descend upon you. It is just steops away from virtual life, and the simplicity of its look makes Minecraft instantly accessible to any who enter its world.
At iFormBuilder, we love building worlds– worlds of understanding & knowledge, created by the mobil data collection apps we build, deployed across developing countries to verify and document safety and contamination risks. Worlds of data, verifying lab safety, and wildlife engineering statistics. But, really, we don’t build those worlds-– you do.
By using iFormBuilder’s mobile data collection platform, the forms created can ask any question, and help put the answers in proper perspective, with real-time data collection and charting. Want to know what car your clients are driving? Ask. Want to know if your museum’s inventory is up-to-date and secure– a form can be created for that. NGO’s, Engineering, EHS & BioHazard, Retail, Education— all these worlds are being recreated with the help of our iTunes and Google play apps.
Like Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson, we build the blocks– to help you build the worlds.
And we can’t wait to see what YOU come up with next.
