Those who can not get enough of playing the Pokemon Go augmented reality game but need help improving their Pokeball throwing skills might want to check out the Pokeball Aimer. Basically, it is a 3D printable case for iPhone devices that is designed to guide the user’s finger into a more precise position when throwing a Pokeball to capture any one of those irresistible cute monsters with even cuter names. Sure, your rivals might accuse you of a bit of cheating when you use the Pokeball Aimer, but hey -- all is fair in love and catching Pokemon. And yup, we have already come to this point.
The Pokeball Aimer is the brainchild of Jon Cleaver, a designer who specializes in 3D. He designed this case to sit comfortably over the display screen of a user’s iPhone device, and cleverly provides a groove which the user’s finger can easily follow. Amazingly, Cleaver is making the Pokeball Aimer available as a free download by way of the MyMiniFactory 3D printing website. It bears noting that as of this writing, the Pokeball Aimer’s dimensions specifically work only for the iPhone 6. But there is hope for owners of other iPhone models -- according to Cleaver, if there is sufficient demand, he will proceed to designing various Pokeball Aimer sizes that can fit other iPhone versions.
The mobile world (actually, much of the whole world, or at least those countries where the game is available) is now in the midst of a full blown Pokemon Go craze. In just a matter of days, mobile users everywhere have been hooked by an augmented reality game that has them hunting those adorable little critters in real, outside locations such as streets, parks, malls, and basically anywhere. Apple has now stated that the game is the most downloaded mobile app ever in its first week in App Store history. The mobile game is so phenomenally popular that stores and shops are now scrambling to turn their business locations into PokeStops in order to attract people to visit their stores in hopes of not only capturing some Pokemon but also maybe shopping from their wares.
The game has become a major cultural thing, and as the Pokeball Aimer has proven, the app has now begun to spawn its own set of accessories. Sure, there are other far more important things in life than the Pokeball Aimer, but for those struggling with their Pokeball throws, they just might beg to differ.
