Tech Toys That Go Beyond the Screen

Check out the NY Times article about Dash and Dot, two programmable toy robots controlled by a mobile app that will begin shipping this holiday season.  They can be taught to understand and react to events that happen in the real world — to play a real tune on a xylophone, say, or to bark in response to a child’s clap.  They sell for $228 as a pair, or $169 for the larger Dash.
