I know what you're thinking. Another glass chest idea. Well, maybe you aren't, but let's just say you are. Well, that's no what this is! Yeah, I know, big surprise. Anyway, I think this could be useful, fun, and just cool. So let's dive right in!
Warning: This item has more use in creative than survival. Live with it.
Since cool looking items and blocks have been put into the game, people have wanted a cool way to show them off. To say that "Hey, look what I have!". And, people have also wanted a use for things like gold. It is too expensive to build a house of of (at least in survival), but what if there was a unique way to show it off? Well, I've come up with the answer. The glass box. I know, the name needs work, but the concept is a pretty good idea. This could be used as a storage device. But I wouldn't advise it. It is too expensive, and it only holds one item. But for showing off, this is a great item. You would craft it like a chest, but with glass. It would look like a normal glass block; until you put something in it. It only has room for 1 item. You can put what ever you want it in it. When you put it in there, it would appear inside the glass box! I know, that didn't need an exclamation point, but it helps. Back to the topic. For instance, if you put a rose in there, it would show the rose in it. If you put a block in it, it would look like a block behind a glass case. This will have many uses. You could use it for something like a museum, for putting behind display cases. Or you could use it as a cool way to show off your rare things. Or, you could do something like beauty and beast, with the rose in the jar (but who would do that?). The possibilities are endless. This could be used many ways to do many things.
That's it! Please comment if you liked it, didn't like it, if you have an idea, or if there is something I was vague on. Thanks for reading, and please check out my other suggestions. Flaminghawk out.
EDIT: Oh, yeah. I don't know how to make pictures, I can't post pictures from my documents, and I can't see pictures. So if you want a picture, you have to make one, and then send me a link to it. Thanks.
