While it appears to (disappointingly) lack the ability to fire foam darts or balls, Nerf’s new speaker wheel accessory for the iPhone and/or iPod Touch will still appeal to kids who enjoy playing racing games, and parents who worry about their phone being dropped or damaged.
Oddly enough the whole steering wheel feature actually seems to just be a by-product of the speaker being round, since first and foremost the Nerf N908S is a multimedia dock boosting the performance of the idevices’ own built-in speakers. There’s even a kickstand on the back for propping it up on a desk, and it runs on a set of 4xAA batteries so at least the speakers have a little bit of power behind them. It’s currently available on Amazon for $29.99.
