Jeremy Kenisky, Vice President of MergeVR, demonstrated his very awesome toys for us at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair (ChiTAG). MergeVR's products are literally the future of toys!

At MergeVR, they’re “creating the future of toys and the future of play every day. We work with toys because in every generation, toys create the future of kids. We specialize in virtual reality, the place where the physical and digital worlds merge together, because it’s the gateway to this future. And we strive to make it easy, fun and safe for everyone, starting with kids 10 and up, because we want it that way for our kids, too … We don’t believe virtual reality will change the world in some distant future – the future’s upon us. We're building products, experiences and technology to take you there today.”

Merge’s VR/AR goggles allow you to do virtual reality, augmented reality and see in 3D. The goggles are “marshmallow soft” and have adjustable lenses and duel input buttons, and are “super hygienic.” Jeremy says they cannot be destroyed! (Unbreakable? Parents will love that!)

The Merge Cube is also super soft and squishy, and allows you to experience augmented reality, or what Jeremy calls “merged reality.” The idea is to “merge physical products that you can hold in your hand with digital overlays and see all kinds of cool interactions,” says Jeremy. By visiting MergeVR.com, you can download all kinds of apps for the Cube.

The Merge Cube and VR/AR goggles are available at MergeVR.com, at Walmart and by clicking the Amazon links below.
