Here's a novel idea: get off your couch to slay zombies. The BowBlade is an interactive archery simulator that pairs with any touchscreen smartphone and over 80 first-person shooter apps to add a new dimension--and actual physical activity--to FPS gaming. Designed to look and feel like a real bow, the BowBlade is fitted with a universal phone holster and, when connected, recruits your phone’s built-in gyroscope/accelerometer to create realistic aiming and firing action.

In addition to enhancing the player's involvement in FPS games, the BowBlade also adds an element of fitness to the activity. Holding and maneuvering with the bow helps hone hand-eye coordination and strengthens upper body muscles, particularly those responsible for posture.

The BowBlade can also pair with Apple TV.
