LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — As first-person shooters continue to evolve with better graphics, smoother physics and more map and team options, brands like AirDrop are looking to enhance the physical aspects of the gaming experience. AirDrop Gaming, a Michigan gaming start-up, will showcase its first product innovation, the HipShotDot, at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show.
HipShotDot helps gamers aim faster, earn more points and get the jump on fellow shooters in multi-player matches. HipShotDot, which works with every popular gaming console, is a patented, USB-powered LED aiming assist device that attaches temporarily to a gamer’s screen.
The first-of-its-kind gaming accessory was invented by Tim Murphy, co-founder of AirDrop Gaming in Grand Rapids, Mich. A lifelong gamer, Murphy developed HipShotDot using expertise gained as a Navy radar technician and industrial designer for a Fortune 500 advanced design studio.
“With the level of competition increasing every year, we are aiming to improve gamers’ performance and overall gaming experience,” said Murphy. “Think concepts like controllers designed specifically for the size of your hands and the potential for internal control mechanisms that offer the ultimate precision gaming experience.”
In first-person shooter video games, where the environment rotates around a static aim point, the HipShotDot enhances the user’s vision of their crosshairs, making aiming faster. In first-person shooter games, every split-second counts, whether it’s to beat a difficult level in a campaign or earn extra points in multi-player matches.
The HipShotDot is available online at airdropgaming.com and through several national retailers with an MSRP of $29.99. To experience the HipShotDot, visit AirDrop Gaming at CES booth # MP25168 in South Hall 2 on the Lower Level.
