Nerf AR App information update


Hey guys, the Nerf Elite AR Cradle has been seen around the net (thanks to Baidu!), and I've managed to pick up some Nerf updates for you fans! So what's new? Check below:
  • You will be able to access Nerf HQ
  • Review Mission Briefs
  • Track your Arsenal and more in your Battle Headquarters
  • Activate Rangefinder: gauge distance to your target!
  • Record your Battle! Share it with friends, and more!
  • Internet connection required to download and update App (data charges may apply)
  • Internet connection not needed during play
  • Users should ensure they're using the same version App

Now this is ONLY available for iPhone and iPod Touch - no Android version yet (bummer since all my friends use Android and not one Apple qtf..)

Also I got to say, whilst this is early days of the info, it leaves any AR App gamers wanting more - a lot more. Check out what goodies the Tek Recon App has to offer [here] and [here].

  2. Hasbro has been really dropping the ball with Android support. They have never supported it in the new Lazer Tag blasters, and don't appear to have any intention of supporting it with the Nerf lines either. Their current app only supports iOS as well. We have one iPhone and three Android devices in our house, so we can't even get a Lazer Tag game going here.

  3. It's easier for them to make an iphone/ipod touch mount, as they are roughly similar dimensions. There is too much dimension variation to make a mount to fit ALL or even MOST android devices easily (and more importantly, securely).

    One-size-fits-all mounts do exist (phone holders for cars or tripods) but aren't secure enough (require moving components which can come loose) and don't offer enough protection (most one-size-fits-all mounts have gaps to let the mount change size, but present points for the phone to be damaged if the user drops it (much more of an issue with NERF blasters than in-car or tripod mounts).

    Hopefully they will come up with a solution that isn't just make many mounts for many devices (which would cost them too much as well).

    1. I think you would have a point, but Tek Recon have a one size fits all securely and safely

    2. So we think, however no one has actually gotten to use one in RL or in a war. So right now we are just going off what they say. I hope that it does though..
