This $35 Nintendo gadget will help you catch PokemonThe Pokemon Go Plus wearable lights up when Pokemon are nearby.
[MUSIC] Pokemon GO is a global sensation, wearable technology is not. But what if wearable could help Pokemon fans catch them all? The Pokemon GO plus is a bluetooth device that let's you find Pokemon without looking at your phone. It's a pin. It's a wristband. It's a mash up between a pokeball and the google maps logo. The pin automatically flashes when pokemon are nearby. No need to pull out your phone. You just press this green button to throw a pokeball and try to catch the pokemon. It'll automatically vibrate if you succeed. You'll even be able to gather pokeballs, berries and potions, from your nearby pokestop, the exact same way. Originally the Go Plus device was supposed to ship in late July, but Nintendo pushed the release back. Likely due to some huge unexpected demand. Pre orders for this $35 device were already selling for upwards of $100 on eBay. But if you don't mind looking at your phone a while longer while you catch Pokemon, the go plus will be out this September.
