It's been just over a year since we mentioned the wireless and rechargeable gaming console — Swinxs. It boasts free downloadable games, ability to expand up to 10 players, a water-resistant shell and true interaction between it's players. It's now an award winning toy, but have any of us actually played with one yet?

The unit boasts the ability to make your children interact with each other, inside the home and out. Wristbands worn by each child communicate with the unit to monitor their game play. In theory, the unit looks amazing, but we just don't see it surpassing the Wii in coolness points any time soon (although it would be nice to be sore from playing outside instead of from Wii tennis). The kids in the photos above seem to be having a blast, but have you had a chance to participate in play with one since their release?

Let us know in the comments below!
