Check out the toy blocks of the future... Pretty damn cool.

It makes me wonder what kids growing up with these types of toys are going to be doing in the next 25 - 40 years.

Enjoy.

Those ARE cool! I'm sure my teenages would love to have a set of these. I can't believe how advanced these things are.

very cool, just another new tool that will help the next generation be even more advanced than the prior with new brain stimulating tools.

Loving the music application & the interactive story.

That music one reminds me of the reactable

Damn. You beat me to it. So close. The reactable is very similar to the "toy blocks", but obviously the "toy blocks" are more dynamic vs. the reactable, which seems to be purely music oriented.

As a DJ, I would really like to have a set of those.

Thanks for posting


Does anyone know the technology behind these?

You mean these?
I think they would be rather expensive.

Siftables.

A couple of months ago I was in a Walmart and saw something similar. They were blocks like the siftables but had a black and Grey LCD display on top. There were animated people (stick figure) and the blocks would interact with each other. One figure would open a door for example and visit another in the next block. I would have picked some up but the cost was a bit much for me.

Man! I wish I had a set of those when I was a kid. Heck, I wouldn't mind a set now. Thanks for sharing this!

Those are neat!
I wish we had those when we were kids. We would learn so much more faster. If every kid in the future had those then, rest assured, the future of our Earth would be secured.
