The Sinden Lightgun is the world’s first true LCD Lightgun, providing all the functionality and game experience of the original CRT Lightguns without requiring additional hardware such as infra red sensor bars.
The Sinden Lightgun communicates by controlling your mouse cursor which ensures compatibility with nearly all Windows and Linux applications that can use a mouse including (but not limited to):
Mame, Demul, M2 Emulator, Supermodel, FCEUX, MEDNAFEN, PCSXR, PCSX2, Dolphin, ZSNES, RetroPie, RetroArch, TeknoParrot and other standalone PC Arcade Dumps, PC games such as House Of The Dead 2/3/Overkill and Blue Estate.
This means it’s possible to play all your favourite Lightgun games such as:
Time Crisis 1/2/3
Virtua Cop 1/2/3
House Of The Dead 1/2/3/4/Overkill
Point Blank 1/2/3
Terminator 2 Arcade
Star Wars Trilogy
Jurassic Park: Lost World
Mad Dog McCree
And many many more.
The Sinden Lightgun calculates where you are pointing on the screen over 50 times a second and provides a complete end to end calculation in less than 25ms. As it remains completely accurate no matter how long you play or if you move positions you can turn off your crosshairs and enjoy a completely authentic Lightgun experience.
How does it work?
The Sinden Lightgun software adds a thin border around your television display. The hardware is an optical based system which uses this border to visually calculate the aiming position.
The Sinden Lightgun can also calculate the angle you are pointing at the television and also your relative distance which hopefully in the future can open up new gaming concepts and interactions.
