I must be getting old, because when I lookat these Augmented Reality Legos, instead of thinking "cool!", I think "In my day, we just used regular Legos and they were just fine for us."
This Augmented Reality concept basically allows you to put fake, computer generated guns and a HUD around your Lego minifigs and have a battle with them.
- Each player is equipped with a toy standing on a base and Augmented Reality glasses (Head mounted display). - Before the game begins, players can equip their respective toy with different capacities (health, shield, camouflage, weapons) on a limited number. - Then, players can prepare together the battlefield (game space) with real objects. - Both players start on both sides of the battlefield and the party can now begin. - The game is turn-based, players play successively in a limited time. - They can alternately move, attack, heal, use stealth, protect themselves with shields, switch weapons etc. - Each weapon has a specific range of distance and a special power. - Real obstacles can obstruct the field of vision allowing players to hide themselves. - The goal is to kill his opponent by strategically using all possibilities of game.
