Yoomi Duo iPad game first to use hardware module

The first ever iPad game to be combined with real hardware is now available for purchase from Toys R’ Us. The game called “Yoomi Duo” uses a round chip holder that sits atop the iPad’s LCD, players use the chips and place them on the holder while guessing which image the other player would choose.

“Each player takes a turn being the Chooser, indicating which of the two items they prefer by tapping their selection in the secret compartment of Duo. For example, would you prefer big bugs or small dogs? Fly to the moon or dive to the bottom of the ocean? Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot?”

The game is uses illustrations in color, so non-readers can play as well. Whoever ends up with the most tokens at the end of the game wins.

You can pick it up for $39.99 from Toys R’ Us, the app is a free download.

    It’s amazing how children and adults alike and together get into playing this game. Absolutely recommend it. Tons of fun and laughter, sitting together with the kids interacting and loving it.

    Seems more than pointless, it’s bordering on counter-intuative. 40 bucks for a cheap plastic device with a light sensor that can only make it twist one of two ways, to determine which half of the cheap beads get dropped in a cup. Great, I have this high end computing device which is a treat to look at, but let’s cover half the screen up with a plastic eyesore that serves roughly the functionality of 2 dixie cups and a handful of pennies (or pebbles).

    That being said, light sensor peripherals is an interesting avenue. Unfortunately this “duo” is a monstrous fail. In fac,t the audacity that someone would belittle the intelligence of even children, to declare this would be enjoyable for them is pathetic. If I was a kid I’d rather see a amazing animation or affect on the screen when I push an on screen button. Plus no mess, no lost beads that come with it. And no awful device that also requires more batteries.

    Hate it.
