Sony Interactive Entertainment is introducing a new way to play with its hands-on educational toy platform called toio. Its goal is to cultivate creativity and getting creative juices flowing, starting with the ring-shaped controllers and many possibilities.

 

The above is a concept movie that gives us an idea of what you can do with toio. The original idea of toio came from Sony engineers who wanted to give children something “real” to play with, not just another virtual diversion like a video game.
