Some interesting ones to keep an eye out for: reversible plush blobby animal toys, davinci’s mancela remix, self-aware stick figures from cubeworld, no!!-no!! attack of the indi-art toys and “Holy Folks” w/play & pray magnetic hands ( I kid you not )

When developing a technology for a specific client, either we have identified how the technology will fit into their business, or else the client has initiated contact with us after identifying themselves the approximate parameters of their desired solution in both technical and business areas. In either case it is essential to work closely with the client to ensure that any solution we develop continues to meet their needs, particularly since those needs usually change over time…” [ Read their blog here. ]
