  • Easily mounting on anything

  • Fully wireless system

  • Up to 1`000`000 players

Such technical possibilities no one manufacturer of laser tag systems. Guarantee. You can check.

With iTager you can turn your favorite rifle into the laser tag gun in 30 seconds.

There are two versions of the iTager lasertag system: the internal (integrated) and the external versions:

Lasertag, as well as laser paintball, laser wars, are innovative war tactic games which imitate militant situations in real life, except that your adversary is defeated by the most harmless infrared light. The head is equipped with multiport head sensors. When the light hits the head sensor, there is a signal and the light begins to flicker, signaling that a player is defeated. The master controller box will count up the number of "lives" lost.

There are many laser tag options on the market today, starting from noname Chinese fakes for $5 (such as CHENGJI) there on Alibaba, which are, in fact, just a flashlight with sound; to the fully functional and quite expensive systems, such as ‘Ekombat’ for $1,200. But all of them are based on the old technology, appeared in 1998.

In iTager we didn’t even try to improve that old technology, but created own solution based on the new advanced technology. With iTager you can shoot at the further distance (up to 2500 feet) with better accuracy comparing to other laser tag solutions. Furthermore, it’s fully manageable from your smartphone (IOS or Android) and there are no wires between a rifle and a sensor. And these are just the most important advantages, while there are lots of minor improvements as well. 

In fact, we have created our own laser tag technology from players for the players.

  • Integrated version - is ready to use and doesn't require any additional work to setup. Just take it out from the box, and start playing.

Our young warrior:

 
  • External version - is easy to mount on a weapon, mechanism, staff, or hand. There is a special belt, that lets you mount iTager literally onto anything. Furthermore, you can use a double-sided tape to attach it to any external gear, or a special lock mechanism for your weapons.

Mounting on a hand.

The micro button with special tape with micro-switches can be reliably mounted onto the any surface (trigger, finger, mop). Being pressed it's sending a signal to the iTager CPU

The wires, special tape and micro-switches design will be improved later for easier and convenient installation.

Mounting on an airsoft weapon

Mounting on a bike.

  • Long range distance: up to 2500 feet. We use a special laser diode with safe range waves, which keeps its efficiency at distances up to 2500 feet. Radiation safety, little scatter, narrow beam, exact hit. However, it retains its good characteristics with the use of standard batteries.
  •  To hit the player - you must to get in his head sensor. On an elastic bandage there are 2 sensor the defeats completely cover 360 ° around the player. The motherboard iTager supports up to 250 individual zones of defeat, but to reduce the base price - we on a Kikstarter published basic set with one zones of defeat. We will release a gourmet addition, which will be connected to other zones of defeat in special vests or entire costume.
  • Fully wireless system: We use WiFi and MESH networks. There are no wires between the weapon and the hit sensor. You can change settings remotely, with no need to connect each lasertag rifle to a computer via USB. Just one click lets you get changes of the settings accordingly to the game rules.
  • Up to 1`000`000 players: Possibility to play simultaneously to 1`000`000 players on one battlefield. 
  • Power system: Despite the long-range distance and WiFi, we use the standard Li-ion battery chargers of 2100 mAh. This allows us to increase the play time up to 50 hours. Standard charger is included in the package.
  • Reliable, waterproof and damage resistant. Size(in inches): 4.7 x 2.7 x 1.6
  • Voice, video and data transfer in the real time. You can connect your headphone to iTager and talk to your team members while streaming. Or to watch a video stream from permitted players on your computer. The video streaming functionality is potentially available there on the iTager's motherboard, but it doesn't included in current set in order to reduce cost of the product. In case of interest we are ready to provide a self integration guide and recommendations how to integrate the camcorder there.
  • Geotagging: special GPS modulelets you identify positions of other players there on your phone or computer.
  • Realtime: All the information concerning the battlefield and players can be seen instantly on the screen of your smartphone or computer. You can easily upload all the scoring data onto the Internet. 

Game Stats' screen:

  • Сross-platform: iTager's software is available for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android operating systems.
  • Sound FXs: Special signals of shots, hits, deaths, recharging, empty cartridges or any other event can be recorded externally and to be uploaded onto iTager via WiFi from your computer.
  • Settings: The lives score and ammunition, the scope of damage, armor, options for shooting, regeneration, recovery time, recharging, personal enemies, and team choice are available in different game modes, and can be changed in iTager settings for each player separately, or for the whole team simultaneously.
  • Game modes: there are 10 game modes, such as VIP escort, Domination, Stalker, and others, all with their own unique settings. Simply choose one and play.

The iTager rifle integrationinto the MP-514k is performed as a limited edition, which is available especially for backer here on Kickstarter. We are not planning to produce iTager in such unique body after the end of this kickstarter.

In 2011 we got the idea iTager, experimenting with externally mounted lasertag gear. That time we used commercial lasertag systems. Later we created our own system:

External and Internal iTagers are two types of electronic boards of our lasertag system:

External iTager

Two types of electronic boards of our lasertag system:

We worked on the safety of all of the systems and are content with the results.

Risks and challenges

We are a team of experienced and ambitious young people, and the most of us are members of lasertag game club. We are far from policy and against war. We do not have a lot of money, but there is a desire and talent. We - the fans. During last 5 years we have been collecting, improving and experimenting with the commercial based equipment, learning their weak points.
At the moment we have assembled 5 working prototypes of iTager, which have been tested by our team outdoors.

All of the iTager components are produced locally, and currently we can produce up to 100 units per month. But in case if we’ll exceed our goal, getting too many orders, we will need to spend more time to arrange the production of additional unites of iTager. We signed a contract with "Clever electronics" for mass production of the plastic bodies for the external version iTager.

Furthermore, we have two suppliers of the airsoft rifles. We are planning to use their products for an external on-weapon version of the iTager. So there is risks with 3rd party suppliers

The risk we can see is a risk of expansion of the team in case if we will exceed our goal. getting more than 200 orders of iTager. In this case we will need to expand the team and spend more time for organization of mass production. But we hope this won't delay us for longer than 2 months.

Another risk we see is a QA issues. It's possible that we will need to spend more time to polish the quality of the final product.

In any case, we will do all our best to fit into current production timeline and to deliver iTager to every backer in time and in the quality state as we promise here.
