Minecraft fans get Hololens previewClose
Ten thousand Minecraft fans were in London on Saturday and Sunday to attend an event to celebrate the popular video game.
Microsoft, which owns Minecraft and Minecraft, offered a handful of gamers the "golden ticket" to try out its new AR device Hololens.
The company is working on an improved version of Minecraft that runs on the system. It allows gamers to see their creations projected onto almost any flat surface in 3D.
Callum Ward, who tested the device on Saturday, said that it was more difficult than a console.
His brother Toby agreed it took some getting used to, but also praised the "cool features" added to the game, including the ability to zap other players with lightning strikes.
Minecon 2015 broke a record in the world for the amount of tickets sold at an event focused on only one game.
In the crowd were YouTube video stars Robert and Vik who are better known as MrWoofless and Vikkstar123HD.
Vik stated to the BBC that Minecon was a great experience as a YouTuber. We create content for a worldwide audience, and it's not often that they meet us.
