Mind-reading toy trains 'Star Wars' Jedi Masters -- with hologramsAt Toy Fair 2015, CNET's Bridget Carey tracks down new high-tech toys. Kids can train robot dino pets, race cars with a mind of their own, bring coloring books to life and don headgear to learn how to use the Force.
here at Toy Fair 2015, we're here to check out which tech toys are all the buzz. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNet update. Crayola color alive brings your creation to life. Color a character in a book, and a smart phone or a tablet app will animate your work of art, and you'll be able to order a 3D printed version of what you just colored. You can take it a step further with the Easy Animation Studio. It uses a pose-able mannequin to transform a coloring book character into a two minute animation. That comes out in the summer for twenty five dollars. This is the MiPosaur. These dinos are reacting to the remote control ball, essentially. You can set different moods, you can seat him, you can play games. When he's not listening to the ball, he'll listen to the app. It acts as a remote control. You can spin him around and also feed him a few things. But if you feed him a sock he won't be too happy. These aren't just remote control cars that you control with an app. These are artificially intelligent cars. You get a pack of two for $100. One you control. The other one the computer will chase after you and fight and battle you. Or if you have a friend they can take over and have some control too. Anci is now Anci Overdrive coming out in September for a starter pack of $150. These intelligent cars know exactly where they are because they have a little camera on the bottom that can read where they are on the track. And you use an app to race and battle your friends or battle a computer car. The app has a few extra bonus features, new weapons, new games,. With this new version and iPhone users can play against someone with an Android app. The Star Wars force trainer creates a hologram projection when you place a tablet on top of this prism. The headset reads your beta brainwaves, so if you concentrate just right, you can lift the X wing out of the swamp or push back your. I am on my way to being a Jedi Master. [LAUGH]. Moving along here at Toy Fair this is the IO Hawk, it's an intelligent personal transporter. To move all you got to do is just lean back and lean forward a little bit, or if you're like me and you're wearing heels you have to really use your core. 6.2 miles an hour is its top speed, but I'm afraid to actually take it there. [LAUGH] Move over, easy bake oven, because there's a new high-tech oven in town by the Girl Scouts. In this new Girl Scout cookie maker, you're able to make your own cookies of your favorite flavors, like the thin mints and others. Once you put it in, the whole thing, from prep to finished, is about 15 minutes. This is my kind of tech toy. I think we need to do more research, though, on it. Maybe I should stay in this booth a little longer, really get to understand. Beyond the product. I mean, do we have any melts left, because mm, boy, these are good. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey. Mm.
