Mattel debuted the Hello Barbie Hologram at the New York Toy Fair, showing what they envision as the Barbie of the future

Not matter how much Barbie's look has evolved over the decades, at the end of the day, she's still a plastic doll. Well, Mattel is taking Barbie into the 21st century by creating the very first Barbie hologram. Debuting the new creation at the New York Toy Fair, the Hello Barbie Hologram is a new virtual incarnation of the beloved toy that can even answer questions on demand.For example, if asked what temperature it is, a window pops up behind Barbie which she glances at before telling you the weather conditions. She can also dance to music, remember details like a child's birthday and location and set up reminders to have children brush their teeth. And like all Barbies, her look can be changed, though this time with a simple command rather than shimmying the doll through various tiny outfits. The hologram is set for a fall 2017 release, though there's no information on the price as of yet.
