Digitizing the Imagination

Digitizing the Imagination
Dan Gould

Frantz Lasome is working on an augmented reality toy concept that takes make-believe and lays it out in front of your eyes. His project lets kids use their old toys as game pieces and controls in an virtual world. Players battle it out, assigning weapon functions to their real world toys, and can watch the virtual action through special glasses. Though it seems like a fantastic toy, you have to wonder how immersion in an augmented world will effect kid’s developing minds.

Like the “is Google making us stupid argument”, will too much of this kind of pre-planned imaginary world stunt creativity, or will it unlock new ways of thinking?
