Expo Notes: BowBlade lets you get physical with your iPhone gaming

If the Wii has taught us anything, it's that technology can help us get off our butts while still enjoying the fun and excitement of gaming. The BowBlade looks to catch in on the archery craze (that's a thing, right?) and add an upper-body workout to your first-person shooting.

Jonathan Seff

Described as "the most versatile active-gaming device on the planet," the BowBlade is a bow with a clip for iOS and Android devices that lets you play more than 35 target, shooting, sniper, and other games by drawing back on the bow and pulling the trigger--with enough resistance to make you feel it in your shoulders the next day.

The BowBlade will come in three different sizes depending on your height. Expect for it to ship in April for $185.
