If you haven’t heard of Recoil, check out theworldisnowgame.com. This is a modern, app-enabled laser tag.
Your phone pairs to your gun, and all the players connect their phones to a wifi base station, which acts as the game server.
My idea is to eliminate that base station. Instead, the “game host” (or even a spare dedicated phone) is the game server and all messages are sent via the goTenna network.
(@Rahul_Subramany if you want to think about 3rd-party integrations? If my phone is already talking to the gun, over bluetooth, wouldn’t a built-in gotenna radio sound about perfect? )
Stuff required to make this work:
- Knowing how to Android. (You don’t want me coding for mobile devices.)
- Figuring out how the game server-y bits work. (This is totally my bag, . )
