The Future of FECs: The Ultimate Battle Simulator

Step aside, laser tag. There’s a new game in town.

An interesting video surfaced on the Internet this morning. It features what could be the next big thing in family entertainment center attractions: a shockingly realistic video game simulator – the first of its kind.

We’re not just talking about the current 3D games you see in some arcades. The video, produced by The Gadget Show (part of the Channel 5 television network), introduces an individual dressed head to toe in what looks like paintball field attire as he enters a small room surrounded by large television monitors.

From there, the man picks up a modified paintball gun and the real fun begins.

Watch the video below and you’ll see what we mean.

Just two years ago motion picture companies Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment produced the sci-fi thriller “Gamer,” which is set in a future-world where humans can control other humans in online gaming environments via devices very similar to the video above.

While technology has not quite reached that point – yet – it’s still amazing to see that what is happening right now might be huge for the FEC industry in just few year’s time. [back link to other FEC blog]

There’s no doubt, it’s an exciting time to be in the FEC industry. Whether you’re an owner, patron or provide professional liability insurance for the venues, it’s hard to ignore the new technology and interest buzzing around the industry.
