Introduction To Cross World Play

interactive

Developers and toymakers are catering to the next generation of tech-savvy kids with toys that combine the physical and the digital in exciting ways. This new wave of toys are being designed with multiple layers of interactivity to capture the imagination of children of all ages points to a trend we are calling Cross World Play.

Augmented Reality Mirror Lets Kids Get A Digital Makeover

The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror combines the capabilities of an iPad with many girls desire to make them and their friends over. An iPad camera captures the live action, and uses a combination of augmented reality and facial recognition to reflect an image of the child as if they had actually applied makeup to themselves. Motion-sensing technology means that as a child moves their head in the mirror, the cosmetics move along with it.

Disney Creates Online Universe With Infinite Game Play

Disney Infinity is a cross-platform, open-world, video game replete with real world figurines and endless customizable, user-generated content options. The play experience gets truly interesting, when kids choose the Toy Box feature – it is here, where children’s imaginations can push the boundaries. In the Toy Box, players can build virtual worlds, where characters from different Disney movies can inhabit the same space.
