appBlaster gun peripheral to boost iPhone AR gaming

apptoyz's appBlaster has been unveiled as an iPhone AR gaming peripheral

Apple’s iPhone handset is to expand its credentials as a pocket gaming device as retailer RED5 announces it is to launch an augmented reality gaming peripheral for the market leading smartphone.

Dubbed the appBlaster, the apptoyz produced peripheral allows users to dock their iPhone or iPod Touch device using their Apple gadget’s display as the screen into a world of augmented reality attacks.

Boasting a trigger-to-touchscreen system the appBlaster combines with the free app based AR game Alien Attack to offer iPhone touters a new level of immersive mobile gaming.

With a trigger pull activating two soft pads that touch the screen to fire at the AR attacks, the appBlaster further increases its gamer immersion utilising the iPhone’s accelerometer with tilt to reload joining a manual cocking option.

Due for release on July 7th, the apptoyz appBlaster is available for pre-order now exclusive to online retailer RED5.co.uk priced £19.99. Those extra keen to pick up the iPhone gaming add-on will be able to snap up the appBlaster from London’s Oxford Street Selfridges a day early on July 6th.

Are more immersive gaming peripherals needed to make the iPhone a gaming powerhouse or are its simply app based games enough for most users? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
