If you have some time to kill, grab some friends and head out into the woods for bragging rights in what is sure to change laser tag forever. Move over paintball, here comes iTager.
With iTager, players can either use an integrated laser tag rifle or set up their own favorite rifle, like an airsoft gun, as a laser tag weapon. The primary laser in the unit is accurate up to 2,500 feet and is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery giving the unit up to fifty hours of playtime per charge. iTager records headshots through a worn headband alerting the player they have been defeated while also using Wi-Fi to record statistics like shots, hits, misses, deaths or custom game setting stats. The unit comes preloaded with ten different game modes and, according to the developer, will track up to one million players on the battlefield.
iTager works with voice headsets for team coordination, is waterproof and damage resistant and the external unit mounts to just about everything, even a bike, taking laser tag to the streets. iTager is seeking funds on Kickstarter and targeting a mid-2015 release with the fully integrated laser tag rifle going for around 450 bucks, the external unit for around 210.
