Product Engineering | Laser Kites Game

Developed through a group project in MIT's Product Engineering Processes class, Laser Kites is a game that combines the fun of laser tag with the magic of flying kites. Designing our own kites, release mechanisms, and laser guns we built a laser tag game utilizing shooting kites out of the sky rather than shooting other people. Using IR sensors we can use one way communication and real time feedback to make the kite unstable and fall from the sky when its been hit multiple times by the laser gun.
