Not gonna lie, this looks like a lot of fun. I’ve been paintballing but I’ve never seen a setup quite like this.In Korea, kids just be running around shooting each other with bb guns. Basically, a nightmare for American parents but over there, every toy store and corner deli got them for sale. Not a big deal. This map though? Pretty crazy. It’s called Wanju Military Theme Park and the map has that urban setting with everything from a mock gas station to a street food stand. The kids suit up and just run wild through the course, scoring points.
According to YouTube user Ds4odk, this system employs wireless BB detectors—one on the front, one on the back, one of the helmet, and one on the face goggles. Hits are signaled by LED light and electronic sound feedback, and kills are then registered on a central computer, and this particular map has closed circuit cameras.
LOL @ the kid slinking by at around the 0:58 second mark, presumably mumbling ‘oh shit, oh shit, oh shit’.
Man, this looks like a lot of fun but at the same it’s like a reminder that South Korea is still at war with North Korea and the boys will have to eventually give up two years of their lives to serve in the military for real. Buzz kill, my bad. ://
