Lightgun that works with LCD/new TVs!

I happened to run across this today and was really excited to see it. Comparability is still low as of current, but this is still a big deal IMO.

It is very cool indeed. Polymega licensed their tech and plans to make a version of the Sinden lightgun for their system. I hope it materializes faster than their console!

This is awesome! Thanks for sharing. I'm a big fan of lightgun games, so I'm glad to see this technology finally arriving.

It's really cool that it also works on CRTs and projection screens, and with a variety of consoles and platforms.

Interesting. I’m curious to see where the Polymega goes, I’m curious about what that thing can do when it gets hacked.

Well, I'll probably wait for the Polymega version...
...but...
I want to hear more about how it works with PS1/PS2 systems. They mention that there's a DIY kit for that, but not what is actually needed for it or how to get it.

Also, how well would a Pi3 work with PS1 games? I haven't heard. And there's for to be an option for the Plystation Classic right?
...and would a mame setup on a pi3 play Beast Busters? I find the port on SNK 40th to be almost unplayable.

So many questions, and I think that it's too new for answers.
...just another lost soul...
