Can't Stop AR.

AR will be everywhere.

There are AR Apps, Hololense and its ability to increase productivity and now toys... lots of toys. There are still a lot of people playing Pokemon Go... but that was just the first test... Lots of toy makers, not a novelty, a major change.

With the best AR display out there-- (I've tried every one that I could get my hands on....) MicroVision will do amazingly well.

And near eye display is only ONE of the businesses... The one thing that every smart phone user wants is a bigger screen... All the auto makers... and tech companies are making self-driving cars.... Microvision is there.

Profitable next year, announcing orders this summer. Review the Conference call.

Multiple Tier1 Tech companies.

Thank-you Mr Tokman!!

Wired -- AR Toys are the future of play 

With the rise of AR apps and games, companies like Hasbro and Mattel are following suit by utilizing the same technology in their toys.

Whether AR is integrated with stuffed animals or board games, all it takes is a smartphone to access the tech.

As co-founder of Merge (a company specializing in VR/AR content for kids) Andrew Trickett explains to Wired, AR demands less hardware than a traditional VR headset.

For example, Merge developed its 6DoF Blaster which uses a smartphone to create digital targets kids can run around and shoot at, akin to playing laser tag.

The appeal in AR toys lie in having kids be active and mobile, as opposed to glued to a television.

This has prompted companies to start designing AR gadgets that merge the physical with the virtual, from AR integrated picture books to puzzles.

“There's a certain satisfaction with touching something and physically manipulating it. I don't think that's going to go away,” notes Trickett. "But those physical objects are going to become a lot more interesting.”
