Kids these days don’t really play with the toys we’ve grown up with. Instead, the younger generation spends more time on computers, tablets and smartphones. In an effort to bridge the digital world with tangible toys, LEGO has come up with a concept that literally enables kids to use LEGO bricks to build an entire virtual town! The LEGO Fusion concept requires kids to build facades of buildings with bricks. These are then to be scanned with a smartphone or tablet app.
Once scanned, the structures can be placed in a virtual town. Each house can be built on a surface of only 16 x 16 studs. A special LEGO “capture plate” also needs to be added to these facades. Overall, this one works well as a concept, though we do expect the LEGO Fusion to involve a lot more than just building facades!
