Hunter Research and Technology has teamed up with Hasbro for the Nerf Mission App.

The Nerf Mission App works with the Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Rail Mount accessory, transforming an N-Strike Elite blaster into a full battle camera complete with a heads up display, compass, inclinometer, and rangefinder.

The app lets users record photos and videos, track their arsenal, learn about squad communication hand signals, and plan missions for multiplayer Nerf battles.

The Nerf Mission App is based on the Theodolite Augmented Reality Navigation app developed by Hunter Research and Technology which works as a heads up display with compass, GPS, map, zoom photo/movie camera, rangefinder, tracker, and two-axis inclinometer.

"We're pleased to take Theodolite's powerful augmented reality technology in a fun and exciting new direction," said Dr. Craig Hunter, principal and lead developer at Hunter Research and Technology.

"Theodolite has a strong customer base of professionals, outdoor enthusiasts, and high-tech gadget nerds, and the Nerf Mission App brings a whole new group of more playful and younger users into the fold."

The Nerf Mission App is available for free from the iTunes App Store, and works with most iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 5.0 or later.

The Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Rail Mount Accessory is for ages 8 and up, and sold separately.
