Turning the World Into a Virtual Game Board

Kids spend way too long with their faces plunged into digital devices. But the digital world of connectivity isn't going away anytime soon. Enter Proxy, a social networking ecosystem for kids that turns the world into a virtual game board. Using pocket-sized figurines that connect wirelessly to other toys, they'll allow kids to collect friends and points in the real world and turn them into social capital for the digital realm. Proxy People, currently developing the prototype is expected to seek investment in the later half of 2013.
