lol why is it the only thing that comes to mind for a gps system that tracks players would be like on mw2 with that hearbeat sensor, to mount the iphone on your gun sideways and be able to flip open when you need it lol.

That's exactly what we're talking about here...hell, if heartbeat sensors weren't $30k, and larger and heavier than a rifle, we'd be looking at using them, too.

There is a radio controlled helicopter called the Parrot AR drone that has 4 rotors and a camera and you control it with your iPhone and see what the camera sees. I just don't think it would do well covered in paint

Playing around with it right now. Seems pretty solid. Though you would need a cheap and/or rugged device to run it. Either marker mounted or arm mounter seems like the best option. iPhone with an otter case would be alright. Or, you know, could go all out with the itronix GP300 from General Dynamics, though the lack of a camera would prevent AR use.

now what we need is to tag your opponents before the match with gps beacons, and then use a tracker.

lol.... I thought the same thing at first. I remember playing with a GPS mounted to my guns back in 1995. I used a cellphone mount for my hopper.



The BattleTac system is obviously far more advanced, since the leaders can pinpoint all the other players. In my case, if we were using radios, I could call the leader, tell him where I was according to the GPS, and ask where he would like me to move.

At the time, I really liked playing solo in the big games, and always tried to get behind enemy lines to direct the flow of battle.

In big games it'd be really nice even for just finding where your buddies are. "by the big oak tree" isn't particularly useful information in a forest full of trees and other guys dressed in camo

Yeah, particularly for traveling players who often visit fields they've never been too before. You can give all the visible landmarks you want over the radio but if someone's never been to that area before it doesn't really help.
