As the world of toys and other devices collided with the app world, a whole sector of entertainment opened up. Phygital products are enhanced through their connectivity with mobile devices by adding new content, creating new experiences and value, expanding the products features, and many other diverse reasons.
We at 5 Elements, with our years of combined entertainment and toy product experience, collaborate with our clients to discover the best methods of connectivity. 5e takes into account the robustness of the tech options, their ease of use by consumers, and pricing for both parts and tech licenses, to help you make the best decisions for your product.
Working with companies like Mattel and Jakks Pacific, 5e and its owners have helped connect app to device in a variety of ways. 5e helped Jakks connect their Mighty Runner device to apple and android devices using both physical and Bluetooth connection. In a separate project, 5e created software that connected a toy microscope to mobile devices as part of their popular spy/forensics play line, Spy Net.
Mattel's hot selling toy Mind Flex, was produced by Mike Given with various assets provided by 5e. Taking technology that connected thought to action in this high-tech obstacle course, we helped Mattel realize this product in the marketplace.
Our internal processes and our flexibility in adapting to other company's processes allow us to integrate easily into your existing team, code connectivity features between devices, or through full app development. We love to collaborate to hit notoriously tight production deadlines with our product centric clients.
5e can help connect your product to the physical world. Whether AR wearables, creative answers for cost effective alternatives to some technology licensing issues, or high tech entertainment groundbreaking, give us a call or email, and we can discuss the details of your project.
