UNLOCKING YOUR KID'S IMAGINATION: Toyota will be exhibiting a new concept at the 2016 Tokyo Toy Show that is aimed at igniting an interest in motoring. Image:

Tokyo, Japan - Toyota Motor Company is exhibiting its Camatte Capsule trailer at the International Tokyo Toy Show 2016 (June 9-12).

Measuring 3.7m long, 1.5m wide and 1.8m tall, the Camatte Capsule is equipped with three screens that allow children to visualise their own interpretation of a vehicle interior.

Children attending the show can customise the trailer by using a tablet with a specially designed app, Toyota says.

How it works

Thanks to the application, six different colour patterns can be projected – and then a total of eight different objects can be added inside the trailer.

The design then gets projected on three of the trailer’s walls and Toyota believes parents and kids will be able to discuss the designs envisioned by the small ones.

The interior can be customised as a joint activity for parents and children to share; creating an opportunity for parents and children to enjoy interacting with cars together.

Continuous involvement

Out of a desire to convey the joy and dreams of motor vehicles to the next generation, Toyota has been exhibiting various types of Camatte vehicles at the Tokyo Toy Show since 2012.

While children were allowed to exchange and customise exterior panels of Camatte vehicles in the past, the focus has shifted to the interior space this year. 

The show will also feature several of Toyota’s previous Camatte concepts, including the Sora from 2012, 57s (2013) and Hajime (2015), giving visitors the chance to think about the future of cars and motoring with hands-on experiences.
