Lego/metaio Augmented Reality "Digital Box" Leak

    Newer Older

    Lego and metaio are debuting this innovation in stores soon. It uses their augmented reality techniques to let kids see and manipulate an extremely detailed 3D version of the assembled model, by moving the box around in front of the display.

    In other words - freaking whoa!

      That's a smart use of AR technology - it really makes sense!

      Yeah, "baby steps" may be the key to breakthrough adoption by the general population.

      Omg "baby" steps - I made a pun! Also, how spoiled are kids these days? We used to get line drawings with the disclaimer "not actual product"! ;)
