Awesome wireless game gun won't make you better at games


11:00 AM on 08.30.2009



Badass community member and all around swell fellow unstoppablejuggernaut spotted a nifty gadget on YouTube. It's called the GameGun and it's a gun for games. Nothing new there, right? Wrong. It's more than just a fancy light gun it's got motion tracking, meaning that your movements are what appear on screen. Turn left, you turn left. It doesn't use drivers, so it works with every game out there. The video above has what appears to be the inventor of the gun and owner of Blackhall, the "company" behind the the GameGun, showing the very cool looking tech off.

I'm a bit dubious about the "company" as their website looks like it was put together by, well, a guy in his garage and because the video is of a guy in his garage. Plus, you should never fully trust someone who sucks at videogames, and he seems to die a lot. However, since it is a guy in his garage the tech most likely works as well as advertised since faking it might be difficult, and he says its compatible with every gaming system out there now. In fact if you disregard the low budget of the GameGun's "sales pitch" I'd say its a definite DO WANT item or at least a DO WANT TO TRY IT OUT item. In the video below he also discusses how the GameGun will have a projector mounted into it in order to project the game onto a wall or screen for playing. No price point yet, but I can't imagine it being cheap when it drops some time before the holiday season.

(Update: Movement is handled by the keyboard built into the gun it seems.)
