Consumer Electronics Show: Laser Shot trains hunters at home

January 8, 2011 |  2:03 pm

Remember Duck Hunt on the old Nintendo video game console? Sitting in your living room with that gray-and-orange plastic pistol, shooting as many ducks as you could so the stupid dog doesn't laugh at you? Good times. Well it's back at the Consumer Electronics Show. Sort of. 

Laser Shot makes systems that project targets on a screen so you can shoot them with a laser-equipped gun. The systems are used by police departments and the military, and now for about $500 you can have one in your home.

The systems have an arsenal of gun facsimiles to choose from, including pistols and long guns. Or if you prefer to use your own gat, they offer a laser device that turns your heater into a laser target gun that works with the system.
