play: part two - Hybrid Toys!

in part two of my little adventure into the world of playing, i am going to look at hybrid toys - hacking stuff to make it fun, in a computery interactive way.

This is a musical pot, by the good people at mediamatic. Inside each flower there is a RFID tag, which controls the pitch the pot resonates, while the big flower has a wii remote inside it which controls the tempo.

This little horsey will spout a recorded message while there is a light source. when it goes dark it shuts up.

I think i need to get some toys in and play around myself.... and some more arduino boards and some RFID tags and nick a wii remote and and and...
