The Arkade Motion Blaster uses the screen of any smartphone as a portable monitor for your PC games. Then its sensors act as your camera controls, so you can tilt the device around as if you were really aiming in the game. The Arkade is compatible with Call of Duty, Apex Legends, Halo, Rainbow Six, Counter Strike, PUBG, Fortnite and hundreds of other popular titles.
But what about titles that just came out? Yup, it does those too. In this newly released video, Arkade demonstrates how to use the Motion Blaster to step into the world of Doom Eternal….from a cheap $30 phone.
The Arkade also runs mobile games as well….at least, those of the FPS variety. Candy Crush wouldn’t work very well, but the device runs over 40 of the top first-person shooter games on Android. For PC, it works with Steam games through Steam Link, and is also compatible with Nvidia’s cloud gaming service, GeForce Now.
The Arkade Blaster is currently being funded on Indiegogo. You can get one for a $99 Indiegogo pledge, or if you act quickly, a $75 Early Bird pledge (as of this writing, about 700 are still available). Paint variants like the Demonic Blaster and PewDiePie Blaster are also offered (Felix is an official spokesperson for the Arkade).
The Indiegogo campaign for the Arkade Motion Blaster is live now and runs through April 24.
