"Toybic" is the next generation of personalized remote-controlled toy car that can be custom-designed via online application and 3D-printed at home or any other 3D printing location. The platform provides user an opportunity to enjoy the interactivity of virtual games in a real world. Real-life RC cars encourage users' creativity to build new designs, learn 3D modeling and printing, communicate and share with others, promote sustainability (old or broken parts can be simply re-printed). The main idea is to provide kids an alternative to mass-produced identical toys and inspire them to be different, to create new forms and be unique, to bring together parents with kids and to let them share knowledge and communicate, to replace 'bought, gave away and forgot' with 'let's create, make and play together'.
