When the Wii hit the market it didn't take long for accessory makers to flood the market with a hoard of accessories that made the games you played a bit more realistic. You could get steering wheels for Mario Kart, gun controllers for shooters, and sports gear for golfing and other games. It's was pretty cool really. That same sort of controller to increase the realism is coming to the iPhone.

A cool new gun accessory has turned up for a company called Apptoyz. It is a plastic gun that has a case to hold your iPhone on it and a trigger. The gun and associated app turns your iPhone into an augmented reality shooter.

Everywhere you point the gun the iPhone camera puts little aliens into the real world for you to shoot. It appears that the trigger pulls on the gun actually make a couple plungers that touch the iPhone screen activate to fire. The app for the gun is free, but the gun will set you back £20. This is a really cool setup.
