As a product manager, if I were tasked with building something after Google acquires Lego, I would focus on integrating Lego's physical building blocks with Google's digital technology to create a new generation of educational toys that teach kids coding and basic programming concepts. This product would consist of a set of Lego building blocks that come with a digital component, such as an app or a web platform, that enables kids to program their creations. The app or platform would provide a visual interface with drag-and-drop components that enable kids to create simple programs that control their Lego creations. For example, kids could build a robot out of Lego blocks and then use the app or platform to program it to move, turn, and respond to different stimuli. They could also program their creations to interact with other Lego creations, creating a connected network of robots and machines. The product would be marketed as an educational toy that helps kids develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and coding skills. It would be targeted at parents who want to provide their kids with a fun and engaging way to learn about coding and technology. Overall, this product would leverage the strengths of both Google and Lego to create something truly innovative and unique that has the potential to revolutionize the way kids learn about technology.
