The AppTag Laser Blaster turns the average smartphone into a laser-shooting device. The app ensures a healthy round of laser tag is equipped and ready to go regardless of time or location. That's right, these miniature guns simulate the famous childhood game, and can be enjoyed with friends complete with gun reloads and score records.

Jon Atherton took on this project in Brisbane, Australia for users with smartphones or those that carry an iPod Touch. The piece to purchase is the hand-held toy gun in which one's slim device can be slid into place to start powering the game. The devices communicate through sound, so there's no need to be connected to any WiFi or Bluetooth waves while playing.
