LEGO Blends Real Life with Virtual Brick Building in New Fusion Kits

| Cool Stuff Found

LEGO is bridging the gap between building in the real world and virtual worlds on your iPad with its new Fusion kits. Think of it as Minecraft that starts on your kitchen table, then moves into your iPad. Each kit includes 200 bricks you can use to build a virtual town, resort, raceway or fort, depending on which pack you buy. You start by crafting building facades, then snap photos with the iPad camera. Each facade you capture becomes a 3D building in your virtual world where you work to keep your virtual minifigs happy. Kits are priced at US$34.99 each and will be available starting in August. The accompanying iPad app will be a free download from Apple's iTunes-based App Store.

My pocketbook may be in trouble again. My kids will be demanding this for the holidays.
