Mattel Adds More High Tech for the Holidays

Techstination feature for Friday, October 15, 2010

Mattel adds more high tech for the holidays. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It's a game that uses infrared sensors, lights and music to challenge your memory and reflexes. Loopz...l o o p z.... is making it onto various lists of hot toys for this holiday season. Mattel Brands President Neil Friedman....

"One person can play or two people can play." Now what's the technology in this? It uses sensors? "It uses sensors and lights and sounds to control the game. So you can play on one side by yourself or you can have somebody playing on the other side and play one against the other. It's a tremendous game. It's lots of fun. And it's different for every play."

Loopz is designed for the whole family, ages five and up, and sells for under thirty dollars. We'll have more on some of the top tech toys for the holidays in the weeks to come. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
