Real Life Space Invaders Using Drones

For GeekCon 2016, a team led by ForReal Team, Avi Ostfeld, and Tomer Daniel engineered a game of Space Invaders engineered a game of Space Invaders for the real world. Okay, there are computers involved, but the game play itself takes place outside of a computer. The targets are Arduino-enabled drones with LEDs, the weapon is a laser that turns itself off momentarily after firing, the movement is supplied by a twenty-foot rail underneath the player’s seat, and the drones turn out their lights when they get “hit.”

A good time was had by all. -Thanks, John Farrier!
