If I had to choose my favorite new gadget shown at CES Unveiled, it would be this Duck Hunter game from Interactive Toy Concepts. It features a free-flying, flapping duck that you try and shoot down with a miniature infrared shotgun. On just a 12-second charge (it connects to the shotgun) the duck will fly for about 30 seconds, and it takes just 3 direct hits to knock it out of the sky. It will hopefully be available sometime this Spring with an SRP of $29.99, and there’s also a 2-player version in the works which allows a second person to actually control the duck’s flight.
But I think what really endeared me to the Duck Hunter game was this guy. Not only was he dressed in fatigues and an orange safety vest, but he was demoing the game every few minutes and driving the surrounding exhibitors crazy. The duck always seemed to take a different flight path each time, and usually ended up crashing in the most awkward of places. If I can annoy people half as much as this guy did with one of these, it would totally be worth it.
