25.08.2008: BATTLEFIELD SPORTS APPLIED FOR A PATENT FOR 'LIVE COMBAT SIMULATION'
Battlefield Sports, an Australian outdoor laser tag manufacturer, applied for patents for Live Combat Simulation and Inflatable Game System (applications to World Intellectual Property Organization No. WO/2008/074082 and No.WO/2007/070970). The texts of the applications caused some uneasiness within the members of world laser tag industry: some of us estimate that the may-be-issued patent will cover not the equipment produced by BattleField Sports only, but the other laser tag systems as well. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that everyone interested may carefuly study the abovementioned applications. You can also join the appropriate discussion on this topic at LaserForums »
02.08.2008: JAPANESE ROBOTS PLAY LASER TAG!
Robots-Dreams.com informs about creation of a super robot laser tag game system, named "Blaser": Japanese Company HotProceed has mounted a small laser on the right arm of a KHR-1HV robot and a sensor in the robot's chest. You can move the laser up, down, and side to side using the analog joystick control. If your robot is hit, that automatically triggers a preprogrammed routine for it to fall down. After a few seconds, your robot can get up and resume play. However, if you're hit more than three to five times, the robot thinks it's dead and you have probably lost the competition. The Blaser system supports up to 16 players at a time, usually divided into two teams with 8 robots each. Please, Read more »

29.03.2008: EURASIAN AMUSEMENT PARKS AND ATTRACTIONS EXPO IN MOSCOW (EAAPA-2008): WHAT'S NEW?
The first international entertainment exhibition EAAPA-2008 (EurAsian Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo) was held at IEC Crocus-Expo in Moscow from March 24 till March 26, 2008. The exhibition was especially remarkable because of the special attention paid to laser tag industry (e.g., special prices for laser tag exhibitors, laser tag seminar held within the conference days, etc.). As far as the exhibitors are concerned, the most remarkable booth was probably the one devoted to Lazer Runner system (btw, at this exhibition their new Windows-based software was presented for the first time in Russia, and probably, even in Europe). The Russian laser tag distributors were talking about grand opening of the second Lazer Runner arena in Russia within a couple of months. Besides, as a result of the exhibition there are good chances that two new Nexus arenas may be opened in Russia soon. And we are waiting for opening of another 3 or 4 Laser Club arenas (in Russia and abroad), as well.
