First, I would need to make sure that the infra red interacts with each other, or maybe hack a broken gun into the robot, then take the robots AI/circuitry and put it into a bigger bot that could run on grass, but then I get more concerned about the kids tripping over it. I would need to make sure it goes slow enough.
The guns are designed to play eliminator rounds, so everything I do has to include the likelihood of people running out of lasers and lives. We play team games, free-for-all, vampires vs zombies, capture the flag, Protect the President, a one life round, parents vs kids, etc. It is good for 2 hours.
I've determined I need a video. I should have determined that a long time ago, but...such is life. I thought I would use the forum to figure out how to do that...please bear with me as I do.
...so I spent 3 hours making a video and over 2 putting it online. I copied and pasted so many embed codes, I think I was beginning to memorize them. That was pretty time consuming for 91 seconds of footage.
I will share the one bit of knowledge I gained from the experience...
What kind of lazer tag guns do you use there? Do the rifles themselves sound an alert when someone is hit? I played lazer tag once years ago, and we had harnesses that lit up when we got hit.
I haven't kept up on lazer tag since then - I sporadically play scenario/tactical paintball and own two Tippman paintball guns, the US Army Alpha Black and the now obsolete Pro-carbine. With the exception of the hopper and tank, the Us Army Alpha Black looks just like a semi-automatic rifle, similar to the M-16, made with metal and synthetic stocks. Are lazer tag guns made with this sort of attention to realism, or are they for the most part lightweight plastic without much durability?
They are airsoft MP5's with a laser tag scope added. They run on an elimination system, the first 8 times you get shot they go "Uggh" and when you lose your final life they scream. They guns themselves are made of plastic, but it is very durable and there are some metal weights inside to give it a realistic feel.
