Vancouver-based Recon Instruments made a smart paintball mask


  • That is really cool. Takes the game to the next level. Might not need video games with stuff like this coming out

    As an avid player, both bush and mainly speedball, this is both very cool and kinda useless…

    Only time I’d see this being interesting is in a big game… At rates of 15bps ammo count in hopper would just be useless ( hoppers carry 200 rounds, on my team my front guys only use little 50 round hoppers)

    I guess when your sitting behind a bunker hiding, you could check your email and Facebook…

    For $600+ I can find better uses for the money.. Like new loud pipes and jet kit for my bike 😀

      I agree with the Big Game aspect, only time I could see it being moderately useful. I personally can’t see it being used within the CXBL (or any of the other leauges). especially with the competitive sponsorship agreements.

    Pretty neat idea. Really curious as to how the CXBL and the other leauges will regulate these. Also interested in how “ammo” counters will work and if it will include the pods.

    it does seem like a moderately redundant item to add when you can just yell (to find out where your team is) and count your pods (to know how much paint you have)

    On a side note. I got a good chuckle out of “health”
