|8||Laser Tag Glove
Keng Yan Lim
|Our group wants to make a laser tag glove. The idea stems from childhood games where you pretend your hand is a gun. The index finger will emit the laser while the thumb acts as a trigger. We plan on using a contact sensor so the laser beam is shot every time you press your thumb against your index finger with a buzzer sound confirming the shot. The remaining three fingers will have flex sensors, which will ensure the hand has to be in a "finger gun" shape in order to work properly. Also, we will create a vest with 4 sensors in order to detect when each player is hit. At the moment we are planning on implementing the game for two players.
For record keeping, we plan on giving each player's glove an LCD display. The display will show statistics such as kills, deaths, and time remaining in the round. Player one will have 4 buttons to set the amount of lives and time the game will start with. If you are the last person standing or have the most lives once the timer runs out, you win the round and the LCD display will show that. We plan on making this battery powered, with the batteries located on the vest. In order to sync the players, we are planning to use WiFi.
