Danish company Maguss created these playful wizard wands that are connected to a smartphone app, which allows users to conduct lifelike magical battles. Inspired by the Harry Potter series, this game combines physical activity with technology.

There are three parts to the interactive game that allow users to cast spells and gain experience. There is the wand itself, a wearable sensor and the mobile platform. The app allows users to battle against friends who are in close proximity. The wearable will track movements made by the wizard wands. These movements will then be translated into spells and tracked through the app. The app will record damage received and damage given. As users conduct battles they will progress through various levels in the hopes of achieving Grand Wizard status.

There is a Kickstarter campaign that hopes to raise monetary funds in order to create and distribute this high-tech magical game.
