I'm excited to announce that LaserVR Alpha Range will be arriving on the iTunes App Store no later than Tuesday, June 19th, 2012 (UPDATE: available now!). So, what are you going to need to prepare for this momentous occasion?

  • An iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPad 2/3, or iPod Touch (4th gen)
  • Projector that can connect to an iOS device either directly or via a HDMI or VGA adapter
  • Tabletop tripod for your iPhone or iPod Touch
  • Low-powered (< 5mw) laser pointer

You might be thinking that you can get away with just holding everything in your hands? Nope, that wont work, so order a landscape-orientation tripod, like the iStabilizer Flex™ right now! If you have an iPad... uhh... you might need to get creative with how you're going to stand it up in landscape orientation, pointed at the wall. I'm fairly confident that sandwiching it between two flat books will work nicely.

Yikes! The press release was supposed to be released a week from today, but it somehow got loose, so here it is!

Use a Laser Pointer to Fire at Virtual Targets with LaserVR™ Alpha Range for iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod® Touch

VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON – June 19, 2012 – Circutus LLC today announced the release of LaserVR™ Alpha Range, a unique video projector game available exclusively for iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod® Touch. By connecting a video projector to a camera-equipped mobile device, the LaserVR™ technology “sees” the game playing on a wall, and tracks the dot from a laser pointer to recognize button clicks and player interactions. LaserVR™ Alpha Range is a futuristic target shooting game, available now on the iTunes App Store for $7.99 / €5.99 / £5.49 / AUD$8.49.

LaserVR™ Alpha Range uses advances in computer vision to combine a virtually projected game with real world actions. For the first time, the processing power of modern mobile phones and tablets make it possible to simultaneously process a real-time camera feed while displaying the game’s graphics and user interface. The game player already owns the most expensive piece of equipment, in their mobile device, and can now couple it with a Pico projector, a tabletop tripod like the iStabilizer Flex™, and a low-powered laser pointer, for a portable virtual reality gaming experience.
