The app works as well with a stylus as with touch. It will also be possible to scan items from real life with a device like an HP Elite x3, or, eventually, your phone.

The company has also introduced a new online community, connecting creators and creations around the world. “Remix 3D will enable all-new scenarios for creators, including the ability for Minecraft players to share their 3-D creations broadly with the Remix 3D community,” reads the official blog post.
