This $18 USD Gadget Turns Your iPhone Into a Real Life First Person Shooter Game

The future of mobile gaming is here.

By //Tech

The first real life massive multiplayer FPS has finally come. Once a dream for all youngsters, Father.IO looks to revolutionize mobile gaming (and gaming in general) by offering a small device (called the inceptor) that melds your phone from the digital into the real world. The company launched on Indiegogo yesterday and has already smashed its goal of $50,000 USD.

Father.IO sets the stage for a dark alternate reality and utilizes geo-localized strategy for first person shooter battles. The device, combined with the app allows players to engage in huge multiplayer real world battles.

Father.IO is an alternate reality future, set shortly after the Technological Singularity. Artificial intelligence has surpassed human intelligence, the IoT connects the whole world to the Net. Humanity created “Ethereus,” a super-cloud computer, able to re-design itself, in a perpetual and hyper-accelerated process of artificial evolution.

Learn more about the device and support its Indiegogo campaign here.
