LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Autonomous Alloys launched the world's first Magnetic Resetting Shooting Targets on Indiegogo, Aug. 8, 2016, and has achieved it's $100,000 funding goal in less than 3 days, with 27 days remaining!
Autonomous Alloys' patent pending magnetic resetting shooting targets are the first of its kind, offering lightening fast, magnetic resetting paddle targets with shooter facing LED indicators to provide a heart-pounding, adrenaline pumping, live-fire experience that is matched by no other target system.
Digital Steel targets start by providing definitive multisensory feedback, both audible and visual, to deliver instant hit information, but then adds software control over the release of the paddle as well as visual feedback via LED indicators to share game state information.
Designed to connect with virtually an unlimited number of other targets over Wi-Fi, its designers are really trying to hook into the essence of what makes video games so fun. Michael of Autonomous Alloys describes their philosophy like this:
"Video game mechanics are effective because they provide instant feedback systems coupled with instant performance data. Leveraging the same virtual world mechanics in a real-world, live-fire scenario encourages improvement."
That instant feedback can be had in single player, head-to-head, and even co-op game modes and drills. Training drills and advanced modes provide real-world high-adrenaline scenarios and test everything from your double tap and magazine swap speed, to target acquisition and endurance. Other features include:
- Smart game mechanics for fast action drills
- Real-time reports to inform shooters improvement
- Virtually unlimited number of wirelessly connected targets down range
- iOS/Android Apps enable fast and intuitive game starts
- Up to 4 players for head-to-head or co-op battles
- Bullet proof! LED illumination is shielded with replaceable bullet resistant polymer shield and the target paddle is cut out of AR500 ballistic steel
- Solid-state with no moving parts but the paddle itself
- Designed for .22LR, .380, 9MM, .40, & .45 cal
The design of the system is over a year in the making, as brothers Mark and Michael Campbell have worked on the concept in the Mojave Desert near Los Angeles.
Early feedback from the community and beta testers has been very encouraging. Jacob Paulson of the USA CCW & Firearms Training podcast mentioned, "There is no justice we can do on this podcast to describe how cool this is!" Entertainer and trick-shotter 22Plinkster said after spending a weekend playing with the targets "These are the coolest targets I have ever shot at in my life!"
