LEGO VIDIYO sets are now officially on sale
LEGO today announced the first release of the all-new VIDIYO set. The new press release contains more details from the first announcement, as well as a presentation of new types of products. The new LEGO VIDIYO set comes with 3 elements: BeatBoxes, Bandmates and BeatBits. The first release of the sets, scheduled for March 1st, will include six unique portable BeatBoxes, each containing a minifigure representing a specific musical genre.

Choose a song. A huge selection of regularly updated tracks, all genres are represented on the basis of Universal Music Group.
Scan beat bits and minifigures. You can load up all your characters to create a band of 3 musicians and 2 performers using the included minifigures. After scanning, select your characters and customize their appearance, write the name of the band and select covers.
Time to play! Select the characters for the 1 minute performance and the desired BeatBits, each with a color value. Black for visuals, pink for costumes, aquamarine for sound effects, orange for comedic effects, yellow for dance moves, green for scene and backdrop changes. Then scan the scene: it can be your bedroom, backyard or brick model, the place is scanned in 3 seconds, and the reverse time is turned on.
Share art. You can choose the best 5, 10 or 20 seconds of performance, upload and share with other young creators of the masterpiece in the application feed, as soon as you pass the moderation. Any content with personal information, such as children in the foreground in a video, will not be moderated, but may be stored locally in the app for private use with friends or family members.
