Etienne Mineur, Play & The Invention of Appmates

Really interesting interview with inventor, Etienne Mineur who talks about the importance of playing and seeing the world from the point of view of a child.

"Mix high technology & low technology" - Etienne Mineur

Mineur invented technology that allows real life toys to connect & talk to the iPad. Disney recently released an ipad game/toy  hybrid using this technology called APPMATES.
