Dutch duo Bas van de Poel and Daan van Dam from Wonder Years have created a Lego concept called ‘BrainBricks’ that bridges physical and digital gameplay. Tiny sensors in the bricks enable them to ‘understand’ their configuration and wirelessly communicate it to any mobile device. This allows the user to upload their creations to a Lego gaming app and bring them to life by playing with them in the video game. The better the creation, the better it performs in the game. Check out the concept’s video below:
