Earlier in the year we caught site of an interesting new gadget at the London Toy Fair, the App Blaster is an augmented reality gun attachment and game for the iPhone created by the guys at Apptoyz. Since then the product has gone from strength to strength and is now available to buy from Red5.
When we used the appblaster back in January we were impressed, it comes with the gun which is built to work with all current iPhone and iPod touch devices. The traditional trigger operates a pad that touches the screen, in fact there are two pads that operate two different weapons. The screen uses the rear camera to shoot your surroundings and bad guys appear to fly around the room through the magic of augmented reality.
Apptoyz have also confirmed a new free app which will be released on the app store on 6th July, this will allow users to play the game without the appblaster – although the experience won’t be as fun. They have also promised a wave of new updates and apps throughout the year.
The appblaster costs £19.99 and is available to pre-order from Red5 now, although you will have to wait until the 7th July for it to arrive.
