this was just on the front page of digg. That guy isn't wearing too much protection? The accuracy looks great on this.

Great weight-loss video. I laughed my arse clean off. That hurt just to watch - but it was waaaay toooo cool to look away. :)

Haha wow... my paintball guru buddy and I were talking about creating exactly this. That guy has a decent enough lead that we probably shouldnt even bother...

These things aren't about the hardware, imho, they're about algorithm development. Don't let his work disuade you. Best algorithms win.

If I were getting lit-up that hard, I'd be thinking about what I'm wearing.

I used to play with the Team Ironman guys all the time back when they were multi-time world champs. Even they didn't light you up as hard as that thing does. It's just totally indiscriminate. It doesn't matter how "dead" you are, it's gonna keep shooting if it sees you. If a little dead is good, a lot dead is better - that's why I'm in love with it... ;)
