The folks over at Pocket-lint have been doing a great job covering the Toy Fair going on across the pond, digging up quite a bit of stuff that wasn’t shown at CES. Like this recognizable accessory which adds a bit more credence to the iPhone as a gaming platform. I mean what self-respecting console doesn’t have some kind of gun accessory right?

From the same people responsible for the iPhone RC car/heli remote from a couple of days ago, this AppToyz accessory works with an accompanying augmented reality app that has you blasting aliens in your actual environment. And to keep the price down to under ~$30 (£20) instead of interfacing with the iPhone’s dock connector, the App Gun simply uses a touch-friendly lever to tap the screen whenever you pull the trigger.
