We are the creators of the Button Man Game: David Docherty, Louis King and Jaanus Unt. As students of Robotics Bsc at Plymouth University, we decided to create a whole new aspect of laser tag gameplay for a games development module. Using our knowledge of electronics and our love of realtime, community gaming, we have come up with the infrared sniper rifle (and infrared receiver) and a completely new, real world lasertag-esque game.
We began development on 10th october 2014 and still remain in the intital stages of the design process. Initial drawings and schematics can be found on the Initial Concepts page as well as a picture of the very simplified infrared transmitter and receiver circuit.
