Interactive, even with Legos

Lego and Nintendo’s have interactive Super Mario Lego play sets, which will be out on August 1st.

The starter set will include the interactive, Bluetooth-enabled Mario figure. In addition to the smartphone connectivity, the figure also features LCD displays on Mario’s eyes, mouth, and stomach to display reactions and gameplay elements, and a speaker for music and sound effects. There are also sensors to detect color, movement, and special “action bricks” that can interact with the figure in different ways. Mario himself is battery-powered. Sure is different than the Lego’s my kids had!
