The iPad gets physical – and gets Disney

 

TUAW is reporting that Disney will soon launch a set of physical toys that interact directly with iPads. Apparently this will be something of a scroller game where the landscape will scroll by and the child (in all of us?) interacts by moving a car over the surface of the iPad.

While the description provided doesn’t seem very compelling I’m very interested in learning more about the technology used in the cars. I’m a big believer in the growth of physical interaction with computing devices. In spite of this incarnation seeming a bit lame I think we will soon see some exciting innovations. And that 32-bit Arduino will likely be in the middle of things…
