Shooting Watch Emulator Available on iTunes Store

Posted April 2nd 2009 by kino.

In what might have at first sounded like a pretty cool April's Fool joke, Hudson Soft announced the release of an iPod Touch/iPhone software based version of its Shooting Watch line of devices. Just like its yellow plastic counterpart, but going for a much cheaper US$0.99, the purpose of the Shot Watch app is simply to measure how fast one can repeatedly press a button within 10 seconds. Unlike the physical gadget, Shot Watch will feature six different modes (Shooting, Time, Stop, and the unlockable Secret 1, Secret 2 and Secret 3), and allow users to upload their scores to Hudson's online ranking servers.

Some will miss the tactility of the real thing, but at least the more than reasonable price will get you a fun piece of geek culture. Reasonable until you factor glass replacement costs from rubbing a lighter across your iPhone's screen, you damn cheater!

Hit the jump below for the embedded trailer featuring Takahashi Meijin himself.
