LEGO is teaming up with NetDevil as it plans to connect its users one brick at a time with a virtual world of their own. This online, muti-user forum will bridge the creativity involved in building with social interaction that an online venue can offer.
Implications - People are renewing their interest in their past more then ever. Entertainment, architecture and design industries (to name just a few) have taken cues from old childhood favorites (such as LEGO) and incorporated them into adultized products. This virtual LEGO world is the perfect example of how companies that take a new spin on an old favorite are setting themselves up for success and to ultimately connect with their consumers.
