The device was released on Tuesday by Now Computing for $79.99. It has a LED Display and automatically backs up the worlds that you have created in the game, using the cloud. As a result, in case you misplace your band, you don’t have to worry about losing your progress.
The band will only work on Mac, PC and Linux computers. It was confirmed to The Huffington Post by a representative of Now Computing. Various versions of Minecraft have been released on video game consoles, and smartphones and reports indicate that it is more popular on these platforms. As a result, a lot of gamers will be out of luck if they wish to use this band. However, for those who haven’t taken a plunge, this device could serve as a wonderful gateway into the Minecraft Universe.
The Game’s USB Memory Chip has the entire game stored in it, so all you need to do is plug the bracelet into a computer and boot it up. Contributing to the creative spirit of Minecraft, the Gameband allows users to customize the band itself. The LED screen can show the time along with any pattern made through the “Pixel Furnace”. The game has sold 54 million copies since its inception in 2011, and Microsoft bought Mojang, the developer for 2.5 billion dollars.
