While it’s not a new Barbie doll, Mattel unveiled the Hello Barbie Hologram at Toy Fair 2017. This time it is a play set that has a virtual Barbie inside, one that has a personality too it. A mirror projection technology is being used, but for the kids, it will be known as magic.
With an array of microphones and artificial intelligence, you can have a conversation with Barbie.
This might even be looked at like an Amazon Echo for kids, as it will get frequent updates.
Mattel is saying that the Hello Barbie Hologram playlet will ship in late summer 2017 for under $300.
