Apple Attacks

While I highly doubt they meant to, the iPhone 5 looks to put a dent in Hasbro's newest gadget: Lazer Tag Augmented Reality.  The new phone is physically bigger than the previous iPhone 3 and 4, both of which are compatible with the new iOS cradle in the newest iteration of Lazer Tag.  Hasbro has been heavily advertising Lazer Tag with it's iPod and iPhone heads up display gimmick and it looks to either make them design a new cradle (which isn't totally out of the question) or redesign this brand-new system to adapt to this new size.

Those involved with the LTAR's Development have already been hard at work meeting the demands of consumers who wish for Android functionality... but now there's another elephant in the room thanks to the larger size of the iPhone 5.  Got the tip from Skurj over at The Hive Mind, so give that article a read too.
I realize a lot of folks are still in the dark about the LTAR, so here's some quick links below to posts and reviews I've made that are relevant.


  1. The size of the new charging port is going to cause issues too....

  2. Do you know if there is a way to modify it to fit an iphone 5?
