One of the most memorable music videos of the 1980s is A-ha's "Take On Me" featuring a young woman who's pulled into a world that looks like it only exists as crude pencil sketches.

Most kids' toys are designed to survive years of abuse during playtime. But the toys they make themselves? Like a dinosaur made from Play-Doh? The odds of it surviving longer than 10 minutes are slim, unless it gets preserved forever inside Hasbro's new app that turns even abstract Play-Doh creations into animated characters.
