NETRONIC – the game is just beginning…

Solutions that are going to change impressions about active leisure time and sport activity – outdoor laser tag game – once and forever.

It is a game you cannot stop playing: realistic weapon recoil, penetrating wounds, explosions, intelligent wound indication, and complete online stats just on the screen of the weapon.

Complete safety begins at specially designed shapes of the equipment and goes to the technologies, blocking weapons when game goes dangerous. Completely automated control starts with automatic launch of the game and goes to equipment power switch off. So let’s start a laser tag game and business based on the NETRONIC platform.

Headband

New minimal design. One of the lightest headbands in the industry.

Externally headband became more modern and attractive. Black and “Pixel” camouflage color options perfectly match two options of Falcon riffle color – black and tactical ones. The headband weighs only 150 grams, having become 25% lighter than before. It allows players to play without any discomfort even for a very long time. Sensors and control unit became almost twice smaller, compared to previous versions, while sensors height is now only 6 mm. Those are new compact batteries and electronic boards, as well as tight sensor elements arrangement, which made those changes possible.

Sensors and control unit boards are covered with protective coat, preventing contacts oxidation and minimizing possibility of premature failure. There is water-resistant zipper that allows one to quickly and easily access and maintain electronic elements.

AIR MESH hygienic cuff – comfortable and easy maintenance

Netronic headband
Each NETRONIC headband comes with 2 hygienic cuffs. The cuff is made of transpiring AIR MESH material. It is used worldwide for sport goods production due to its durability, lightness and hypo allergic features. Its mesh texture provides transpiring air-circulation, making even long games comfortable. Cuff material is wear resistant, allowing it to stay attractive even after 1000 games.

Extra bright diodes and inverse mode. Play day and night

Light sensors indication is visible at the distance of up to 100 meters even during the day due to improved sensor case optical features. This headband features inversion mode in which it constantly lits team color, providing safe
conditions for a game that takes place at night or on the laser tag arena. Activate this mode in program settings.

Mark feature – sound indication for searching

Headbands feature sound indicators, producing loud signals when the laser tag gun it is connected to is off. The sound is heard until the headband is on or the laser tag gun is activated. This way instructors can find headbands if they have been lost.

4 hit indication zones — even better recoil

Each sensor features separate processor, responsible for vibro- and light indication. This way a headband vibrates exactly on the side where a player is hit. Players understand where they were hit from and thus get even more involved into the game.

CORDURA MAXI – wear proof headband material

New headband textile basis is made of CORDURA MAXI material with the density of 1200 gr / sq.m. — it is 50% more dense that in other headbands available on the market. This material is used for production of military gear due to its long-life performance and ease of service. CORDURA MAXI is deformation- and water-resistant, and perfectly holds its shape.

Scratches and wear proof sensors

Casing of both sensors and control units are made of high-strength polycarbonate. It is a popular material used mainly in motor-car and aerospace industries due to its endurance features and long service life. Service life of sensors is more than 10 years! Sensors casings additionally feature special protective tip to prevent scratches and scuff marks.

Control unit with charge indication

Control unit features charge indication as well as spacious and compact battery. Li-ion batteries have been replaced with modern lithium-pol ones like those used for mobile phones. Their capacity is 1500 mAh. Headband control unit is located in the transparent case and is also used as a hit sensor. All 4 elements on the headbands (3 hit sensors and 1 control unit) receive a signal and thus hit angle is 360 degrees – there are no shadow zones! Moisture-proof tact power switch activates headband as well as works as a hermetical plug for power supply socket.

Independent headband operation, exit wound and explosion features
(will be available with next firmware updates)

Each NETRONIC headband sensor features IR transmitter. Now headband both registers hits and deals damage. This feature allowed us to expand some presets by adding new realistic features. A sniper can hit opponent and opponent’s teammates with a through-and-through shot while grenade gun mode allows you to hit few opponents at once. When in Zombie, Doctor, and Hostage modes headband can be used autonomously without a laser tag gun. You do not need to buy a separate headband for those roles.

Laser tag gun

Multi-mode color OLED-screen

Each NETRONIC laser tag gun features color OLED-screen. It displays 12 indicators at the same time: number of hits and frags, health and ammo scales, type of weapon, number of clips, player’s rating, super weapon mode, and game timer. Color parameters indication together with new user-friendly design enable easier navigation among indicators for players and faster preparation of the equipment for instructors. Wide view angles of the display allow seeing necessary information without getting distracted from the game itself.

All parameters are sorted in three different modes:
• Pre-game — default settings, type of weapon and player’s role
• Game— stats and kit settings during the game
• Final — player’s statistics in the game round

Display is integrated into special tooling system, disabling its displacement when hit. Protective screen prevents mechanical damages. It is 6-mm thick, being 12 times thicker than smartphone screens. Energy efficiency is another pro feature of the OLED technology. If one part of the picture is black then light diodes, responsible for it, just go off – this feature enables longer game with no need of recharging a weapon. You can switch off laser tag screen in the game mode in settings. This feature is implemented in order not to expose player’s location if game takes place at night or in a dark space.

Impulse recoil mode – perfect realism

NETRONIC game kits feature impulse recoil module – patented LASERTAG.NET design. There are shoulder directed impulses on firing, going along the weapon body – they imitate real gun recoil. This recoil effect is much more realistic than simple weapon body vibration — it increases immersion effect of the game. This feature will help you to really stand out among you competitors who are using equipment with vibro recoil.

Impulse recoil is working with its own battery thus ensuring long service life of the equipment because it does not use game kit battery. You can disable this feature in settings if necessary.

Team color indication

There is an RGB diode next to the power button. It indicates team color and lights up when in game mode. Both players and instructors can easily see to which team one or another game kit belongs.

Falcon strengthened case

Since the first release in the year 2014 Falcon F1 and Falcon F2 body design has been upgraded in several ways. We have strengthened both join points of weapon body elements and electronics tooling modules. Rear sight has also been redesigned to improve shooting accuracy of players. Falcon laser tag gun solid casing lacks sharp and protruding elements that could hurt player or break down. Its casing is made of shock-proof ABS plastic, known for its durability and capable of withstanding even weight of a car. Each Falcon laser tag rifle features protective 8-mm rubber tip, smoothing hits during collisions or falls.

Capacitive sensors for the second hand – safe game, fair tournaments

Standard and higher modifications of Falcon game kits feature capacitive sensors for shooting with one hand, located in the fore-end. When sensor is activated game kit shoots only when held with two hands. Otherwise the laser tag gun is blocked and its screen displays an alert message so that a player could fix the mistake and quickly get back to the game, following its rules.

This solution decreases risk level of the game, preventing injuries, provides fair conditions of the game and safety of the games held indoors. This feature is off by default. Go to settings in Android application to activate it.

3 hit sensors in the laser tag gun

Falcon laser tag rifle features three hit sensors – frontal one and two side ones. They create 320-degree hit zone. When activated those sensors exclude situations when player, hiding behind a bunker, puts out his hand with a weapon and hits opponents blindly scot-free.

Laser tag gun hit modes:

  • Damage for the player as if hit in a headband;
  • Shock – laser tag gun goes off for a set period of time (this feature will be available after next firmware updates)

Two weapons in one laser tag gun

Some presets give players an option to use the “second” weapon. You can switch between main and additional weapon, holding reload button for 3 seconds. This feature makes game process more flexible and increases level of immersion into the process.

  • Sniper – gun is a second weapon;
  • Assaulter – grenade launcher is a second weapon;
  • Doctor – gun is a second weapon.

Sound support – even more realistic game

NETRONIC platform features option of playing two sounds simultaneously. This way player will not face situations when one sound interrupts another one. Each game log will be heard regardless of density of events during even very dynamic game.

Protection against accidental shut-off

Hold power button for 3 seconds to activate / deactivate a laser tag gun. Hold it for 30 seconds to switch weapon off when in game mode. This way you will not be able to accidentally switch laser tag rifle off during the game. This feature also decreases possibility of weapon accidental switching on during transportation.

Automatic game kit shut-off

A headband and a laser tag gun power off if they are not active for 10 minutes (when you do not press any button or shoot from the weapon). So even if players or instructors forget to switch their game kits off they will shut-off by themselves. This feature drastically decreases power consumption of the game kit and thus allows one to run more games without charging game kits. Change 10 minutes set by default for automatic shut-off through software.

Software

Smartphones and tabs ANDROID application

Use special application to control all functional features of NETRONIC based game kits. This software features automation of the game process: one-click start and finish of the game, automatic completion of the game and much more. Download the latest version of the application for NETRONIC platform on our site. There will also be regular updates for Tagnet based game kits.

Extensive real time statistics

Clients of laser tag clubs are very interested in the efficiency of their games. Use stats also as a tool to solve controversial situations or to encourage your customers to be active by commenting.

NETRONIC game kits register number of shots, wounds, points, etc. All information displayed in Android application is very useful for instructors. They can stimulate competitiveness of players, warming up their interest in the game with their comments. Instructors follow all actions of players during the games on the laser tag field through the application on smartphones or tabs.

Game log chat displays all actions of players during the whole game round. This way judges stay fair when there are laser tag tournaments taking place or when there appear controversial situations between the teams. Application displays general team statistics as well as personal efficiency of each player. In the end of each battle each player gets a certain rank, according to his efficiency. For example, the most accurate one will become a “Rifleman” while the one who was hit the least will be an “Invincible” one.

Share stats with everybody

Now you can display online statistics and game log on the TV screen. TV-out application will be useful during both tournaments and usual games. This way fans can watch all game adventures while players can see the results of their game. When the battle is over you can print game stats on the official letterhead and give it to your customers. It will warm up competitiveness of players because they can both discuss statistics among them and share it with their friends.

Scenarios configurator

Different scenarios will make game interesting and capturing. Use scenario configurator to modify the existing scenario or to create a new one. Condition of ending the game, duration of the round, health and ammo points, as well as many other features can be set. Having this option, you will be able to satisfy needs of your most regular customers and to attract the new ones.

Kids Mode — game mode for children

Kids Mode is a new game mode specifically adapted for the youngest visitors of laser tag centers – for the 8 y.o. children and younger. Now instructors will not have a headache about what scenario to choose for the children while the youngest players will easily understand all rules and details of the game process.

Active Kids Mode features:

  • Automatic respawn;
  • Active reload;
  • Eternal clips;
  • Disabled capacitive sensor of shooting with one hand;
  • Disabled laser tag gun hit sensors.

Preset scenarios editor

Scenarios configurator is designed to make game process more versatile. Use it to set your own game parameters: duration of the game round and conditions of finishing it, shot power, shock time, etc.
Now you can edit presets: Assaulter, Sniper, Hostage, Zombie, Vampire, Doctor  — you can change any chosen parameter there!

New interactive options

New NETRONIC laser tag system option is health regeneration. It is activated automatically when “wounded payer” is not hit and he does not hit others himself. Regeneration process stops when a player hits another one or is hit by an opponent. Use application to activate this feature.

Bleeding is another new option that will take away certain number of health points from players. Use MedKit to stop bleeding! Program settings allow one to set time interval of regeneration / deducing health point activation.

Use settings to activate “barrel overheat” feature to increase the realism effect of the game process. This feature is designed to make game more realistic and also to disable blind shooting. When a player has been shooting non-stop for a long time his weapon is “overheated” and is blocked for a short period of time. The shot sound is replaced with a misfire one. Then he just should wait for a couple of seconds to have his game kit reactivated.

NETRONIC functional features are implemented in each equipment piece: headband, laser tag weapon, and software. Those features made it possible to make the game interesting and capturing so that players would remember each visit of the laser tag club and long to come back over and over again. The game is completely safe for both children and adults. Instructors participate in the game organization 10 times less due to the feature of one-click start/finish of the game, easy game kits setting, and automatic turn off.

Latest firmware will be published on our site until March 25 for those who have ordered NETRONIC equipment before its official release.
Equipment market launch is on! The first game kits will be sent, starting from March 20.
