ACCOLADES: Here are what a few key game and tech sites have said after seeing LyteShot up close and personal.
- “…what LyteShot is doing with the sport of kings (laser tag’s the sport of kings, right?) is pretty mind-blowing.” – IGN
- “Starting with the gun and puck as a base, the company hopes to build an open platform on which hobbyists and pro developers can build their own gadgets and games.” – TechCrunch
