As a kid, I always wanted to have a racetrack. With loopings. As a dad, I stil do. But since I know that this toy will be hot for a day or two, and will be in the box the rest of the year, I am not too keen on buying it. For me.. Or the kids.
Then I saw this awesome product. One is no longer bound on the tracks the maker of the toy designed, but you can let the cars go from the stairs, make loopings and have a great design; yuor design

Aus die reihe, analog meets digital:
Korean designer ha lim lee, in collaboration with graphic designer yougduk kim and director woonjin kang, has developed 'barcode band' to create instrumentals through the use of programmed barcodes. the project uses a series of scanners to compose music by looping notes to produce melodies. each code corresponds to a specific instrument or set of instruments (included guitar, drums, and cymbals), pre-programmed at a specific beat or tone. by scanning different barcodes one after the other, users can compile together tracks, sampling music in a new way.
As you might know, I like integrating stuff. Integrating analog and digital. Augmented Reality. Kinect and my computers. And here are dozens of oppertunities there. see for example the posting at dadhoc.omc
