Augmented Construction

Children's creative toys go virtual to encourage development

Implications - As opposed to the typical gaming approach, toy companies are utilizing virtual reality in a way that combines a toy staple with technology: augmented construction toys.

This speaks more honestly to how children play, putting consumer preference above tech capabilities.
