Ok, so maybe I invented this in much the same way as Al Gore invented the internet...

It was a few years ago when the topic of technological leaps in paintball came up on one of the other sites. My thoughts were that some kind of HUD for PB would be the next leap that really incorporates "smart" tech into PB equipment.

Imagine for a moment your HUD in your goggles would communicate with your teamates HUDs to coordinate your positions, imagine it kept track of your paint, your air, shot counts, game timers... the possibilities are endless.

So yeah, I invented it. Wink

where's my check?

looks so much better than that paintball mask modified into a HUD display I posted a while back. I like the features and they should be decently easy to incororate into painball. At least the GPS and music....not sure how you would do paint and shot count unless it had another sensor for shot sound or something.

I like it.

easy. RF transmitter in the loader to tell when paint is low and one in the gun to do shot count, ROF, fire mode..anything you might normally see on a guns LCD. Air info can be sent via a RF enabled replacement guage for your tank and HP/LP regs if applicable... I got it all worked out...

where's my check?

lol, I felt the same way, was telling people at work I wish they made a tylenol cream you can just put on the spot that hurts like upper back or lower or leg or something and then 2 months later Tylenol release a new cream for applying to the spot it hurts......was so pissed.

I like your ideas, and the RF transmitter tech has already been used here and there in paintball so the adaptation shouldnt be too bad. Priority for me would be the loader so you know what you have left.

I also like the idea of it telling you the HPR PSI or LPR or both like the new macdev software does on their oled display.

PostPosted: Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:49 am    Post subject: Re: I invented this...

i understand the joke, but this is where i have a problem of too much technology, or the reliance of that technology. don't get me wrong, i'm typing this on a laptop that is more powerful, smaller and cheaper than what the comparable of something 10-15 years ago.

i don't know if the more tech we create to "make our lives easier", the more stupider we as people get. there are somethings that technology is good for, but when you can't interact with people on a face to face basis or anything that we can truly do without. a RF chip in the loader to tell me when paint is low? nope. its called awareness, its called checks, its called having your head on a swivel. its prevalent in the auto industry, with in the 7+ computers in a Escalade or any Cadillac for that matter.

so in all seriousness, no i don't see this as an advance. i see this as a bucket where someone is telling me i need to do it. caise, if i where to make a bunker run, the first thing i check is my hopper, then i step out to put the target in and then i make my move and hope that i'm quick enough to pull it off as the surprise that it is.

It needs a health and armor display with the shots remaining display. No HUD is complete without those.

And Jarvis would be pretty cool tool.

I thought a HUD would be cool somewhere around 10 years ago. But I agree with Nobody, it's too much. In all honesty if I needed this then we could skip rolling around in the dirt and just play laser tag.....

its not like this is tech they are forcing upon you, you have a choice to participate in it the same way some people refuse to buy a smartphone. I think it would be a cool idea, even with this tech tho you would still need situational awareness, teamwork, physical skills and a mental state for the sport your playing....this doesnt cancel any of those things out, unless you let it, in which case you'll be the first one with paint on your face.
