Instead, all the digital lifting happens on your iOS device, letting you interact with the soft toy as if you were treating its wounds or feeding it a snack, or even getting it ready for bed. One steep drop down the stairs and those pricey tech toys are likely to be toast. Not so with Parker: this bear has already been down the stairs with nary a nick or scratch. Of course. Why not? Now Parker has a bed to sleep in, and a boy of his very own. And I can toss the bear in the washing machine when he inevitably gets gross. Augmented reality comes into play in a couple of different ways.
