About

What we want to achieve

Electronic system for live RPGs. The aim is to create a system that can simulate any type of real or fantasy combat, managing melee weapons, missile weapons, firearms, shields, armor, wands or magic wands for spell-casting. It will be possible to play: 

  • Star Wars Battles with blasters, lightsabers and Force powers; 
  •  Fantasy battles with interaction among Magic, normal or enchanted weapons, shields and armors; 
  •  SCIFI battles among players with different characteristics: Humans, robots, aliens or mutants.
  •  Underword battle between Vampires and Werewolves or simply fights between Humans and Zombies.

Story

I like games, especially RPG, and amy kind of simulation. I met Lasertag about ten years ago and I saw in it the opportunity to bring to reality, securely, all those great adventures that I could only imagine. Since then I have been developping my own laser tag system, I created a small company, patented my ideas and started making my first products. Now, RedRay is a well known laser tag factory in Italy.

www.redray.it

We have enriched our lasertag system with all possible accessories: grenades, flashbang, laser designators. Our software simulates vehicles, manages multiple weapons and sensors in wireless mode. Also, it includes GPS and internet connection and is able to geolocalize the men in the battlefield and handle the support requests.

We applied the laser system tag also to other types of weapons such as missile weapons

and we have done several studies on melee combat systems interacting and sharing information with different groups of RPG Fantasy.

The suggestions received have allowed us to further improve our software and hardware in order to realize an electronic system that does not require to wear any invasive accessories.

Electronic System for LARP

The project involves the construction of various electronic components operating individually for who is interested only in one type of simulation, but that can be wireless interconnected each other for a wider range of simulation. Two main electronic devices will be realized, plus three secondary devices.

Main devices:

  • HW/SW for the management of melee weapons 
  • HW/SW for the management of missile weapons, firearms or laser weapons.

Secondary devices:

  • HW/SW for sound effects, display and racial characteristics
  • HW/SW to manage spells/powers
  • HW/SW to manage the wireless sensors

The melee device will handle the physical characteristics of the weapon, as: normal damage, magic damage, speed factor, deterioration of the weapon. When melee device is set as primary device, it will show also the life points of the player.

The device for ranged combat (missile weapons, firearms and lasergun) will handle the physical characteristics of weapons, damage inflicted by normal or magic bullets, rate of fire, number of bullets available and the deterioration of the weapon. When this device is set as primary device, it will show also the life points of the player.

The device for the sound effects, display and racial characteristics, will manage more widely the character race as: life point, racial bonus, special powers, type of armor worn (normal or magic), etc. Furthermore, audio effects will expand the feeling of playing whilst the display will show many situations of the game. Indeed, on the display player can view his game configuration settings, his life points, if he is under the influence of spells...

The device for cast spells/powers will manage the different type of localized spells/powers via infrared and will manage the different type of area effect spells/powers via a radio system. A localized spell for example can be a “magic missile”, while a area effect power can be a "terrify".

The device for wireless infrared sensors will manage the reception of shots as: bullets, arrows or spells localized.

All electronic devices are configurable through a PC or app for tablet or smartphone, or using a server device.

Risks and challenges

Risk:
There is a very low risk, because we are a company that manufactures laser tag systems since several years (www.redray.it) and we have been deploying our products to improve the simulation and gameplay.

Challenge:
We are a small company that handmades its products. We are already producing the different combat devices and also most of the accessories. But, doing it manually, we need lot of time to realize every single object. The idea of this project is to industrialize the manufacturing process in order to reduce the production costs and to have a greater diffusion of the role plays, making the system "LARP lasertag" accessible to all.
