LAS VEGAS – Starting and growing a business is tough work. But even the most successful entrepreneurs and professionals need to cut loose and have some fun every now and then. This belief isn’t lost on many of the tech startups that are exhibiting here at the Consumer Electronics Show.
Here are three new products that aim to get people doing something other than the usual grind.
1. Laser tag turned up a notch.
Startup LyteShot’s goal is to create live-action gaming that’s more practical than laser tag and more interactive than firing off Nerf guns at each other. It’s essentially a simple system of wireless toy guns and sensors that players wear: You shoot at someone on the opposite team, for instance, and the sensors detect the infrared “shot.” Information is then sent to an app via Bluetooth that registers and tracks the damage caused by each shot.
Kind of awesome, right? The folks at LyteShot hope hobbyists and others will use their open platform to develop their own games and equipment.
