Thread: Adam Savage Plays 'Laser Tag' with Peter Jackson's WWI Planes!

    Default Adam Savage Plays 'Laser Tag' with Peter Jackson's WWI Planes!

    I don't know if anyone is interested but I found this youtube video fascinating. It shows a dog fight between an RE8 and a Fokker Triplane from Peter Jacksons collection. The planes are laser tagged so that hits can be scored and the location of the hit determines the severity of the damage.

    It's not a simulation but real flying planes.

    That looked like a lot of fun John, thanks for that. Lasers don't need deflection, or, suffer from ballistic effects, of course, but the flying is going to be much the same. Their planes are great as usual.
    The other video was good too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ERvun6wzhQ

    That was great. The commentator's chat was a good addition, because we were really there.

    Thank you for those video links, John and Dave. They were good to watch. Will it catch on as a sport, do you think?

    wings of glory; 1:1 scale!!!
    not a surprising outcome with only 1 pursuit vs a 2 seater. and with a novice gunner to boot. imagine how it wouldve been with an ace gunner?
