Dentsu, an ad agency from Japan have come up with a concept for some new toys that do more than just pose and look cute. When you bring in an iPhone to the picture, the little figurines can tell a story, and interact with its environment – through the power of augmented reality. The top half of the toy gives the character personality, while the bottom half of the character determines the environment it is in.
