The Future of iPad Toys?

I saw and interesting product this week – Cars 2 AppMates – a pretty cool looking toy. It’s from the kids movie Cars, and you buy these little cars which have sensors on the bottom (~$20 for two or about ~$12 for one). You put them on top of your iPad and they activate the multi-touch on the screen to interact with the game running in the background. As you move the car around the screen it changes what happens on the screen, little things like headlights that show up on the picture emanating from your toy car… very cool! If I had little kids in the house I’d go buy one, but since I don’t, I’ll have to come up with some other excuse… 🙂
