Xbox Smart Glass: Xbox smart Glass is using smart devices (smart phone, etc..) to control Xbox functions.
Minecraft: A sandbox game that lets you build your dreams block by block. Now with an adventure/survival objective!
Combined: I think that we can use Xbox Smart Glass to look up the Minecraft wiki.
Your first thoughts: I can already do that.
Explained Thought: Imagine yourself just getting Minecraft and setting up Xbox Smart Glass and the new update comes out. (Your un-experienced with Minecraft) You found an apple! Wondering what you can do with an apple in the exciting game of Minecraft you open your inventory and look at the information for the item apple. It gives you a brief description of how much hunger it satisfies. Not knowing much you press the new [RB] button on the item and it opens the wiki page on your Xbox Smart Glass device. Now you know that you can make golden apples. After weeks of using this feature you are now a Minecraft expert that can teach a noob how to survive on hard.
Minecraft Change: All that will be needed to change is a addition to the interface of the item description.

If you'd like. I'll take you to a special place in town. A place where all your wishes come true.
* Not everyone has a smart phone. I don't. (And if I did, I wouldn't think it's an invaluable my life. Google "nomopobia".)
* Not needed. If you have the Tips on, when you run across a new object a tip telling you about it is displayed. You don't need the wiki. And I'm not about to get blown up by a creeper while I'm checking the wiki on my smart phone.
I would really like to see this feature added, it'd be extremely useful and helpful; of course you can pull up your browser on your phone and go to the wiki but it wuld be cool having the game's inventory and device being synced. I think for the screen on the device should show the hotbar and allow you to switch items if you wanted to, of course you could just do that with the controller. But it should change when you bring up your inventory showing it on the screen and being able to choose an item to lookup info about and being able to rearange your inventory.
What i'de really like to see is this feature somehow put into multiplayer, as me and my friends have a hard time seeing our inventories on the screens.
Seems like a long way to go just for a bit of information. Geneo hit the nail on the head. Also, not everyone has Windows 8 either.
it can be used on itouches, as far as i've experienced it doesn't have any functionality in games though, just on the dashboard and in apps like IE. it is incredibly useful in IE, but thats honestly about it.
I like the way you set up the post, but yeah, this would be something like genius. I have played Minecraft for over six months and I still get confused with somethings, and some things in Minecraft are still new to me.
