Hands-Free Critter Catching Ready for Pre-Order

Hands-Free Critter Catching Ready for Pre-Order - MMORPG.com

GameStop has a new item up for pre-order called the "Pokemon Go Plus". Currently set at $34.99, the wearable device uses Bluetooth LE technology to pair the item that looks similar to a Pokeball with a player's phone. It can be worn clipped to one's clothing or on a wrist band and allows users hands-free Pokemon capturing.

The device will vibrate when near a Pokemon with users needing only to press a button to capture it. Similarly, it will alert players to nearby PokeStops in order to collect Berries, balls or eggs.

The crazy thing is that it's still for pre-order with a release date for July 31st. Ebay is already flooded with budding entrepreneurs selling "guaranteed pre-orders" anywhere from $70 to $475 and specially-made wood covers running in the vicinity of $15 each.
