Largest UFO Catcher

For a recent project by Toyota to promote their car called the Ractis, they built a giant UFO Catcher. The "claw" grabber was shaped like an actual Ractis. If you were lucky enough to be there in October 2011 you could have a chance to see the giant claw machine in action and watch families who tried to win a giant teddy bear. At the end of this hub is a video if you want to see more or go to link: http://youtu.be/ZMt8ek3-FcA

If you missed it in real life...you can play the virtual version: a free demo game they put online called RACTIS UFO CATCHER.

Here's some tips on how to play.
