This isn't the Vita successor you were looking for

Sony announced Toio in Japan this week. With a radio comms unit, charger and interface box, the star is little motorised cubes and control rings. With software delivered in the vertical cartridge with the hole in it, its a compact fun toy for creative kids.

Toio promises a range of interactions and real-world games. Lego and Bandai are among the partners signed up to produce content and games. Perhaps Media Molecule will be invited to join in the fun, as the videos show it working rather well as a papercraft motion tool.
