Hasbro Nerf Mission app brings heads-up-display to gun gaming
You might not openly admit it, but we know you love playing with Nerf guns as much as we do. But it needs something to make it more adult, right? How about a heads-up display? That's exactly what you get from the new Nerf Mission app.
All you need is a Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Rail Mount for your N-Strike Elite Blaster and you can mount your iPhone or iPod loaded with the free app.
You'll be able to see - via augmented reality - a compass, GPS, two-axis inclinometer and rangefinder figures at a glance as you move.
Plus you can record photos and videos, access weapons, learn about squad hand signals, and plan multiplayer missions.
You can even use the viewfinder to zoom in on enemies, like a sniper. Although we know how clear an iOS device is for zoom so we'll be sticking to close quarters combat.
The Nerf Mission App is free from the iTunes App Store and works with most iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 5.0 or later.
