Ibn-Tor / Smart Drone for Gaming


The Ibn-Tor is an interactive entertainment drone, which can be used in collaboration with existing laser tag systems. It introduces a new challenge by adding smart, moving targets that shoot back. Their double propeller and gyro assisted flight system allows them to become very agile. Their form and weak spots together with their movement capabilities, require co-operation of players to achieve victory, which teachs skills like tactical and critical thinking to solve problems. As drones become more and more influencial in our lives, drones for entertainment becomes a bare field to explore.
