I don’t play any action / arcade games on my smartphone, but that might change after seeing the BowBlade controller for iPod Touch, iPhone and Android smartphones. Install a compatible game, attach your device to the BowBlade with the specially designed clip and you’re ready to immerse yourself in the game. The BowBlade not only provides a richer gaming experience, but it exercises your arms, chest, back and shoulders while you’re playing. You have to pull back on the bow (12-17 lbs. of resistance) before you can pull the trigger, which is a stylus tip connected to a retractable line. It’s a pretty cool looking setup and I’d love to try one. The BowBlade comes in 2 styles and 3 sizes. Prices range from $89.95 to $139.95. You can buy directly from BowBlade or through other retailers like Grand St. (affiliate link).
