AppTag in the News

AppTag mentioned in PCMag.com Cool Kickstarter Projects.

Urban Taggers – These guys *know* about such things!

Mashable “Is this 2012’s Hottest Toy?” “iPhones aren’t cool. You know what’s cool? Shooting your friends with your iPhone, mounted into a laser blaster.”

The Australian Newspaper – great summary article about all my projects

Twitter Users in General “Gotta Get, Must get, Want want want, coolest Kickstarter project I’ve seen – and lots of other great feedback! :-)

AppTag LaserBlaster

Speaking of mini sites, we now have www.laserblaster.com up, it redirects straight to the Kickstarter program but when (if) AppTag is funded it will redirect to a sales page.

AppTag Laser Blaster – Real World First Person Shooter!

AppTag Laser Blaster brings first person shooter console gameplay to smartphones in the real world. Obviously, as with any blaster toy, the object is to shoot your friends! The AppTag does the shooting and the smartphone keeps score and tracks everything else, the App even adds Augmented Reality objects such as medkits, armour, weapons and ammo packs! 

For targeting we use a focused infrared beam and sensor for the ‘laser’ so it’s totally safe. Each unit has an IR sender and receiver, and the AppTag unit works together with an attached smartphone or iPod Touch
