Augmented reality at play: Air Hogs Connect Mission Drone

Techstination feature for Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Augmented reality at play.    I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.  Merging physical toys with mobile screens is opening up new doors for toys this holiday season.   At Spin Master, they’ve been making Air Hogs radio controlled toys for years.   Now they have created Air Hogs Connect: Mission Drone….which puts on screen what a kid might see in his or her imagination when playing.   Executive Producer Steve Robert…

“We allow you guys with that and a tablet and the drone you’re able to spawn an augmented reality kind of sci-fi universe within your bedroom or within your living room.   And then you fly the physical drone right inside of it.  And it’s endless missions, structured objectives, gameplay patterns.   A whole new extension to a traditional toy.”

Great fun designed for kids ten and up.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
