swinxsNew console launches are usually backed with billion dollar marketing budgets, but a Dutch company by the name of Swinx aren’t taking on the big boys, but offering a title rich gaming machine with a traditional twist that’ll set tongues a wagging. Oh, and it’s made by a Nokia designer too!

Using RFID technology the Swinxs gaming console is already being touted as a design triumph, with one of the chaps involved in the shaping of Nokia phone forms behind this green machine.

Players each wear one of the wristbands then select one of the many games inside which include tag, hide and seek and musical chairs to name a few then listen as the speaking console explains the rules and becomes the referee.

Playing inside or out up to ten players can communicate with the console, and in addition to the ten pre-loaded games which get kids and adults up and active owners can log onto their website to download new titles for free as they become available.

One of the inventors Eduard Zanen told us “Swinxs is the perfect marriage of traditional games and technology, both of which kids love, Its both physical and creative, safe and even educational which appeals to us parents”.
