Speaking of mini sites, we now have www.laserblaster.com up, it redirects straight to the Kickstarter program but when (if) AppTag is funded it will redirect to a sales page.
AppTag Laser Blaster
AppTag Laser Blaster – Real World First Person Shooter!
AppTag Laser Blaster brings first person shooter console gameplay to smartphones in the real world. Obviously, as with any blaster toy, the object is to shoot your friends! The AppTag does the shooting and the smartphone keeps score and tracks everything else, the App even adds Augmented Reality objects such as medkits, armour, weapons and ammo packs!
For targeting we use a focused infrared beam and sensor for the ‘laser’ so it’s totally safe. Each unit has an IR sender and receiver, and the AppTag unit works together with an attached smartphone or iPod Touch
Finally got our mini site for the JaJa stylus up, I don’t have much there at present, but it will be apre-order page soon.
JaJa Pressure Sensitive Stylus
The JaJa was 261% funded through Kickstarter in the end, and we are really happy with the process. The JaJa Stylus Kickstarter program is still up, but preorders will be taken through our own site from now on.
Wow! That was fast, AppTag is now 20% funded in a touch over 48 hours. It took jaja 14 days to get to the same stage. From the feedback I am getting there are a lot of imaginative people out there wanting to write some amazing apps! There are even more who want a quality toy with great gameplay for their kids and themselves.
Here’s a chart from Kickstarter
Got some love from mashable this morning.
In fact it was a pretty glowing critigue of our toy vs the Hasbro product!
Its nice for a seasoned reporter to take a closer look at our toy and compare it favorably to a similar attempt from a huge toy company!

Great article in The Australian Newspaper about my business this morning!
