LEGO Fusion is a series of augmented reality toy sets that bring the building blocks to life in an excitingly digital way. As though filling in the gaps that children's imaginations usually work away at, LEGO Fusion fleshes out the structures that they create in order to visualize full scenes.

For instance, in LEGO Fusion's Town Master set, house facades are given a three-dimensional makeover as well as placed on sidewalks with sprawling parks in the backdrop. This is achieved by an accompanying app on a tablet. When a person views their LEGO Fusion structure on the iPad, the scene is turned into a 3D model.

With three versions so far, LEGO Fusion is the next step in building block play.
