'Lightseekers' by PlayFusion introduces a next-generation gaming experience for kids that fuses the most entertaining aspects of video games with tangible objects for play such as action figures and trading cards.

Kids will love playing with Lightseekers' fully articulated smart action figures, which connect in real-time to devices and double as the controllers for the game, which can be played on mobile devices. These figurines offer two-way interactions with the game, providing dialogue, vibrations and different colored lights to indicate one's status during gameplay. As well as offering tons of at-home entertainment, Lightseekers also provides tons of opportunity for on-the-go play.

Lightseekers was recently the subject of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign and received $227,660 in support from over 1,600 backers. For the long-term, the team behind Lightseekers notes: "we plan to make our technology platform available to other game developers and toy makers alike," so that more kids may experience next-generation connectivity and play.
