Soho's toys-for-adults emporium Kidrobot launches its latest series of collectible three-inch Dunnies this fall, and to celebrate, they've come up with an elaborate scavenger hunt using technology that is, they assure us, all the rage in Japan. How it works: Via the store's newsletter, its Twitter feed, and good old word of mouth, Kidrobot will leak clues leading to secret locations around the city. At the location, you'll find a QR bar code—scan it with your phone, and you'll win a "Virtual Dunny" like the ones pictured above. Depending on which Dunnies you collect and when, you'll then become eligible for prizes, including a full set of the actual toys. The contest begins today and runs through Friday; the Dunnies hit stores September 10.
