Galaxy Zega merges physical toys with apps...creates fun

Techstination feature for Thursday, December 1, 2016

Galaxy Zega takes the merging of physical toys with apps…to a new level.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.    It’s a hot new toy for the holiday season.   SmartX is out with Galaxy Zega…a high tech tank battle game that uses a magnetic snap together arena…with rechargeable tanks…that are controlled with a smartphone, either iOS or Android.  The company’s Erica Zeidenberg…

“You set it up with Bluetooth.  The pairing is really quick so it’s super simple.   The dad who invented this was concerned that his little boy who was five was too into his screens already.  So he said I’d got to come up with something that will engage him and be interactive and be fun for grownups too.”

He succeeded.  The Starter Kit is available at GalaxyZega.com.   The price, about a hundred fifty dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
