Laser TAGRider Converts Dart Blasters into Laser Tag Guns

A new accessory upgrades you favorite foam dart blaster to a laser tag gun.

If you are sick of collecting foam darts after each dart blaster battle, here is your salvation. A new accessory converts any toy foam dart blaster into a laser tag gun.

Singapore based Tag Team today introduced Laser TAGRider, a first-of-its-kind gaming accessory that easily mounts onto any toy blaster to repurpose it for real-world laser tag and/or compatible PC/Mac and iOS mobile games. Featuring Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) that learns and understands the loading and triggering mechanisms of the blaster it is mounted on, Laser TAGRider ensures the ultimate in playability.

A Kickstarter campaign launches today with a funding goal of $10,000 USD, and features limited Early Bird specials at $34 USD as well as several other rewards for backers to choose from - including delivery by Christmas 2018 for backers worldwide. The TAGRider accessories are available on kickstarter.com.

Earlier this year, Nerf released its first Laser Tag guns. I have tested the Nerf Laser Ops Pro earlier this year and they are great. A Nerf Laser Ops Pro AlphaPoint gun sells for $25.49 on amazon.com. This is cheaper than the TagRider accessory. If you don't have a favorite toy blaster that you want to upgrade to laser tag the Nerf Laser Ops Pro is the cheaper and easier to use an alternative. The Laser Ops Pro guns are app connected via Bluetooth. That means an app is counting each of the fighters hits.

Avoid getting the Nerf Laser Ops Burst Fire Combat Blaster. Its rifle sound effect is super loud. Only get this if your kids play outside. It's also less effective in-door combat and has lost each battle in our tests.

Laser TAGRider, which works with both battery-operated and pull/slide loaded toy blasters, does not require WiFi to play laser tag - it incorporates built-in sensors that show users when they get “hit,” recording damages right on the device. For players, this means there is no longer the need to purchase additional gear such as helmets and target vests to record game activities and scores.

It also means that laser tag games using Laser TAGRider can include an unlimited number of players. And, when using Laser TAGRider to play laser tag, players can access three fun game modes: a) Basic (two modes), Professional (2 modes) and Team. In Professional and Team games, Laser TAGRider allows players to select different gun functionality, including semi-automatic handguns or rifles, a machine gun, a shotgun, and more. Each gun features different aspects that allow players to heighten their gameplay.

On top of being used to play laser tag, Laser TAGRider, when connected to WiFi, also easily converts any toy blaster into a light gun for compatible First-Person Shooter PC/Mac and iOS mobile games, including current Tag Team titles, TAG SHOT, TAG CODING, TAG TREASURE and TAG SPACE WAR. All 4 games are available on the Apple App Store, with TAG SHOT and TAG CODING also available on Windows PC/Mac.

“Whether playing laser tag outside in the ‘real world’ or battling enemies on your computer screen, TAGRider delivers a unique gaming experience by adding functionality to blasters and toy guns you already have,” said Tony Tan, founder, Tag Team. “TAGRider delivers a wide range of play options and games, while challenging players of all skill levels to take their best shot!”

Singapore-based Tag Team is bringing a new level of interaction and excitement to laser shooter games. The company manufactures its own laser tag equipment with its proprietary technology, which is available for home use and for rental at events. The company is well known in Asia for facilitating corporate team building, birthday parties, school programs, family activities and more.
