At first glance you’d be forgiven for mistaking the curvy Xappr for a futuristic batarang smartphone accessory, but it is in actual fact an augmented reality laser tag gun.
The quirkily-named Xappr Gun features front indicators which can be read by smartphone cameras, allowing player-vs-player battles courtesy of an upcoming game called ATK.
It’s already compatible with existing augmented reality games like AR Wars and will play nice with iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.
The Xappr Gun is available to preorder now for US$30 – a small price to play for some much needed regression in to childhood (minus the scraped knees and wedgies we hope).
