Back at New York Toy Fair, I Nerf Firevision gear, and it was pretty awesome. While not intended for play in ABSOLUTE darkness (yeah…. sure…. no one’ll try that…) being able to see the the various equipment (football, basketball, etc.) brightly illuminated up to 100′ is pretty neat.
Now while sports are the forte of this line, I had to wonder what kind of applications these lights and reflective surfaces had for other purposes. And if there’s something we love to do here at the House of Foam, it’s repurpose items for all kinds of stuff. (Not mod though, can’t do that. Hi Nerf!)
Quick rundown – (prices are approximate)
Hyperball set with either red or green frames – $9.99
Nerfoop set with either red or green frames – $14.99
Nerf football set with red or green frames – $19.99
Red or green frames sold separately – $5.99
And now, the video! We would use an objective-based game where zombies (we only had 3 red pairs of frames available, so the starting zombies got those) had to find the hyper ball after it was hidden by the humans. Game ended once the zombies got the “brain”. Humans just had to survive with the brain as long as they could.
Let’s go to the tape!
Personally, I’m a big fan about how vibrant the light is (the green illuminates a bit more visibly than the red) and it just shows up on camera so well. Definitely see what all the hoopla is about with Firevision, maybe you’ll find a game that works for it too 🙂
