Disney Cars ‘Appmates’ Toys Will Work With Your iPad, Vroom Vroom

by Conner Flynn

Our iPads do everything these days and now kids will have an extra reason to own one for themselves or use yours. Disney is combining their physical toys with the iPad.

Disney Appmates toys will let kids use their favorite Disney character toys with the iPad the way a game piece is used on a board game. But in this case it is more interactive. The first line of these toys available is Disney’s Cars, but you can expect many more to come in the future. The toys are used with Disney’s iPad apps to create the magic. How it works is pretty simple. Each toy has a unique footprint, so the iPad can tell which toy is being used. The app then delivers an interactive experience that goes with that toy.

Right now you can get Tow Mater, Lightning McQueen, Finn McMissile, and Holley Shiftwell in October when they launch. Not enough for you? Well, Francesco Bernoulli and Shu Todoroki are coming in November.

    This will be reverse-engineer within the week. Because it’s awesome.

    These are the American brand toys but I think we should introduce some Japanese toys brands in America also like TOONAMI and POKEN.

    Until some heavy handed kid hammers McQueen through the “not so cheap to replace” screen :(
