In just a few years since the introduction of laser tag, the technology behind it has evolved so much. Gone are the sweaty vests and playing inside dark rooms that are crowded with children. Laser tag has changed a lot.
The latest type of equipment used for laser tag resembles the console used in video games. The console continues to evolve with regular updates. Just like the regular video game console, the equipment used today made it possible for players to play many different types of games. There are businesses wherein customization is possible either in the roles of the player, the type of game or the models of the weapon used. The physical equipment used is always changing as well because of the updates provided to the firmware as well as software along with the latest game and designs of the weapons.
Majority of adults that have been playing laser tag have not experienced these. What they have in mind is playing inside a dark maze while wearing neon equipment. They don bulky vests, have black lights all over the place and only a single sound or two can be heard from the weapons. The equipment is usually attached to the vest they are wearing and they need both hands in order to fire. The game has very little structure, eliminations are done by killing the enemy with one shot and auto respawn is possible. Though these facilities are still in business, not many of them will be here for long.
The traditional equipment used in laser tag is only suitable for indoor use and the arena must be in low light. The tips of the guns are equipped with rubber and it has flashy lights as well as special features to ensure the safety of the user. Modern equipment, on the other hand, utilized very loud audio and a wide range of sounds. Tracer lasers are not visible unless playing in very dark areas. Because of the many features of the latest tag equipment, you might be surprised to find that the laser tag for sale is quite expensive.
