Laser Tag Gets An Upgrade


Think of Laser Tag, and you inevitably think of dimly lit bowling alleys, malfunctioning laser weapons and crackly SFX that wouldn’t sound amiss on an Atari.

Banish those thoughts right now, and let us introduce you to Skirmos: a laser tag system bringing the best of first-person shooter video games to playful urban warfare, and currently hoping to become fully financed on Kickstarter.

Not only are the weapons handsomely designed (they can change colour from blue to red depending on programmed game mode or whether hit by enemy fire) and have long-range accuracy, but they also come with an LCD screen to show real-time information such as health, shield status, ammo, enemies killed and game-time left, unless you want to switch to stealth mode and have the screen off.

Mostly all traditional online games (Capture The Flag, Team Death Match, Free For All) can be replicated on the system which also allows for players to upload their own special SFX. This, all for the cost of $115.

Yet as the battle to finance the project on Kickstarter is still ongoing, if you’ve any hope of shooting your friends to the sound of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s pump-action shotgun in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, you might want to get donating now.
