SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD/iWORLD 2013 –
When it comes to gaming on the iPhone, most people probably think of Angry Birds-style leisure games. The BowBlade, a new active-gaming device being shown off at Macworld, take an entirely different approach to gaming on iOS. The BowBlade is out to prove that you can stay fit and have fun playing games at the same time.
At first glance, the BowBlade probably looks a little unwieldy. After all, it is about the size of a typical bow. The cool thing about it, though is that the device lets you mount an iPhone inside it which can interact with 35 existing iOS apps for an immersive, active, gaming experience.
The BowBlade isn’t just a gaming accessory though, it can also be used as a workout tool, promoting health and fitness. The device was designed by chiropractor Ron Green, who has developed a healthy body mode for the BowBlade which allows you to use it as a piece of exercise equipment as well.
If you’d like to pre-order the BowBlade, it’ll set you back $185 for the gaming version, $200 for the exercise tailored edition, or $230 for the combo.
