What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

TAGRider is a first-of-its-kind gaming accessory that easily mounts onto any toy blaster!

  • Transforms your toy blaster into a real-world laser tag game
  • Compatible with mobile gaming systems on PC and Mac
  • Artificial Intelligence - learns and understands the loading and triggering mechanisms of the blaster it's mounted on
  • Ultimate in playability

TAGRider works with both battery-operated and pull/slide loaded toy blasters for a complete real-life laser tag experience. Using built-in sensors TAGRider shows when users get “hit” and even records "damages" right on the device, making vests or additional equipment unnecessary. 

  • Use the system with an unlimited number of players 
  • Players can opt any of the three fun game modes: Basic (two modes), Professional (2 modes) and Team. - all in Professional and Team modes

Laser TAGRider allows players to select different gun functionality, including "machine gun" and "shotgun." 

GREAT NEWS! You can still order Laser TAGRider at www.tagteaminc.sg/toys

You can also use TAGRider with First Person Shooter games on Mac or PC. Just connect TAGRider to your WiFi and easily convert any toy blaster into a light gun. A total of 4 games are available including: 

  • TAGSHOT (PC/Mac/iPad) 
  • TAG TREASURE (Apple App store) 
  • TAG SPACE WAR (Apple App store) 
  • TAG CODING (PC/Mac/iPad). 

More details on the games below.

Since June 2018, TAGRiders have been used in TAGTEAM gaming centers for birthday parties and team building events. It's been a huge hit! If you're ever in Singapore, check us out at tagteaminc.sg.

TAG SHOT - First Person Shooter on PC/Mac/iPad.  Once connected via WIFI, TAGRider converts the blaster into gaming hardware so you can battle against renegade soldiers and zombies on iPad, Mac, or PC.

TAG TREASURE - Augmented Reality Single/Multiplayer Gaming Apps on Apple App store. In addition to shooting with your TAGRider, you can tap on the screen for a variety of actions. The app even detects your hand behind the phone for grabbing and blocking movements. A multiplayer gaming mode is also available where players compete against each other for resources. 

TAG SPACE WAR - Augmented Reality Single/Double player Gaming Apps on Apple App store Pilot a spaceship using your iPad or iPhone's accelerometer and face off against a huge TAGRider or TAGSaber in augmented reality! 

TAG CODING - Learn coding and computational thinking on PC/Mac/iPad Start with basic tasks such as "drag and drop" and then progress to writing codes that change the behaviors of your TAGRider!

TAGRider upgrades your toy blaster to the next level, removing the need for foam darts, which have to be frequently replaced and are bad for the environment. And sinceTAGRider is literally giving new life to an old toy that may have otherwise been discarded, you don't have to waste time and money buying a new toy!

TAG TEAM started designing and developing TAGRider in early 2017 building on the technologies of laser tag's Sword, Bow, mixed reality laser tag, and RoboTAG, which were all launched in our gaming center. TAG TEAM was founded by two Cambridge Graduates: Tony (1st Class Honours in Engineering) and Hazel (1st Class Honours in Mathematics). 

TAG TEAM, which was invested in by a Venture Capitalist and Enterprise Singapore, has won numerous awards including the Singapore Prestige Brand Award and Best Innovative Start-Up award for its laser tag sword (TagSaber) by the Singapore IT community, as well as the TBWA Brand Xcelerator Award during SLUSH Singapore 2017.

Risks and challenges

TAGTEAM started manufacturing TAGRider in Sep 2018, and we’re committed to making them available for retail by Oct 2018. Because of that, we believe the risk is low for backers once the campaign is funded since our release plans are already in motion.

Additionally, TAGRider prototypes have already been on trial in TAGTEAM gaming centers in Singapore since early 2018. We've had enough time to hone the design and establish partnerships with manufacturers & suppliers in Singapore so we can ship TAGRiders on time.

The only risk is that the gaming apps launched in Oct 2018 will be the beta version. However, we will improve upon them, specifically to make them ready for multiplayer gameplay, by Jun 2019.
