Equipment: The Plazma Force Laser Tag consists of the laser tag phaser gun, and a vest worn by the players. There are 16 sensors on the vest: 4 on the front, 4 on the back, and 4 on each shoulder. There are no sensors on the gun itself. There are vibrators on the player’s vest so when they get hit, the vest vibrates and lets the player know he’s/she’s been hit.
The Plazma Force vest does not shut down when you are hit and you can still shoot; this is aimed to help players defend themselves against “bullying”. Also, there is no cord that connected the gun to the vest, it is all wireless.
History: Plazma Force Laser Tag is designed and manufactured by Media Vision Inc., an inflatables and amusement product manufacturer out of Whitby, Ontario. Media Vision originally created an amusement game called PhazerZone, which is simply stated as a paintless paintball game, a mixture of paintball and laser tag. The continuing development of the PhazerZone system ultimately lead to Media Vision’s creation of Plazma Laser Tag.
