Laser Tag toys is a game that many people enjoy, but did you know that laser tag has developed even more technologically since it was first introduced? Today laser tag is a game that not only children but adults are playing. Adult versions of laser tag have even been created for people with vision problems and for police officers. In fact, laser tag is so popular that it is now available as an electronic game on the Nintendo Wii platform. If you have never heard of this game, then allow me to introduce it to you!
This game is set up like most other military-style tactical battles. Two teams of players are pitted against each other and are given laser beams to shoot at their opponents. The object of the game is to make your team win before the time expires. The game is designed to simulate an actual battlefield situation. One player on each team acts as the commander who directs the action by calling out commands to his team members.
Laser tag is played using a handheld laser gun similar to those you would use in professional paintball games. The infrared lasers are placed behind either players or obstacles which cause the lasers to be reflected back to the laser tag operator who then aims the laser guns at their opponents. The goal is to hit your opponent with as many layers as you can without missing. The game play is exciting and the action fast-paced. It’s one of the fastest growing family sports in the U.S. today!
The game comes with a protective head gear that prevents the eyes from being damaged in case of accidental hits. A laser tag helmet is also recommended to play the game safely. In fact, some operators require players to wear protective eye wear in order to play laser tag. However, many operators feel that the level of safety is too high and some operators even agree that it is unnecessary. I believe that a few bruises will be quite sufficient to motivate most players to wear eye protection. I have also seen a kid wear a laser tag hat in a football game, which looked pretty cool!
When buying the equipment for laser tag, it is important to ensure that the batteries in the system are durable and that they can handle the force with which the player will generate as they Dodge, slide or run through obstacles on the field. Different balls have different propulsion systems and some require that the player to throw the ball through a net. Other ball types use gravity or high-speed air or water jets to propel the ball forward.
Other accessories can also enhance the enjoyment level of the game. For example, playing with infrared cameras to film it takes just seconds but this can also be recorded and uploaded to a PC to be watched later. Accessories for the game include laser tag headsets and other devices that allow you to communicate with each other. These accessories make laser tag an even more exciting game for players of all ages.
