Being a part of the nether reactor, the glowing obsidian block was also removed in Alpha 0.12.1. It emitted a soft red glow at light level 12. Despite being a variant of obsidian, it only requires an iron pickaxe. When broken, it dropped a block of obsidian. It can now only be obtained through inventory editing.
In Education Edition, the Portfolio is used to document a screenshot taken from the Camera, it got accidentally added to Pocket Edition in Alpha 0.16.0 build 1. It could only be obtained using commands and had no function. It was later removed because it was only supposed to be an Education Edition feature.
The Camera was an entity in Pocket Edition that would capture pictures in the game. In the Education Edition, it works together with the portfolio item to create collections of pictures.
Before then, Cameras was first added to the game in Alpha 0.1.0 and were available until Alpha 0.9.0 build 1. Later it was re-added to the game in Alpha 0.14.0 build 1, but got removed again in Alpha 0.16.0 build 4 due to becoming a Education Edition item. Cameras are currently available in Education Edition.
NPCs were a villager-like mob, but slightly taller than a normal villager. They were an Education Edition feature that got accidentally added in the first development version for the Alpha 0.16.0 update; they were removed shortly later because they were only supposed to be an Education Edition feature.
