If you've played Pokémon Go and felt like there was something missing from the experience, you aren't alone. Some Pokémon in rural areas would be a fair answer, but the folks at GamerReality had a different thought. They think the game is missing an actual Pokéball that you actually throw.
They've set out to fix that by developing a Pokéball that interacts with the mobile app in real time. They call it "The Trainer Ball" and it's pretty versatile for a device that is designed as a controller for just one game. The ball works when thrown in the direction of a Pokémon or it can be used as a gesture device when the user pretends to throw it (a bit like Wii bowling).
The genius little device also functions as a portable charging station for your phone, since running the game is a total battery drain.
GamerReality has developed a prototype, but they have significant challenges ahead before they can start production. However, funding doesn't appear to be one of those challenges. With 31 days remaining in their crowdfunding campaign, they have already raised far more than their initial $25,000 goal.
