Fly swatting simulation with Simon Optix

Inspired perhaps to create this version of the ever-popular colour memorising game from the world of VR headsets this Optix set doesn’t require a smartphone to get in the game. Don your sleek looking futuristic spectacle wear and identify the colour sequence using hand gestures. on-board motion sensors track if you’ve completed your run correctly and, as with the original, pick sup speed and lengthens its colour run. In the vicinity of another wearer you can play head-to-head using infra-red so you’ll need to stay close, in fact, get very close and stare down your opponent – why not. The series of red, yellow, green, and blue LEDs illuminate that see-through visor, we’re happy to see Hasbro trying to remain relevant across different tech spaces and vying for the attention of tech-hungry teens.
