LightSpace at IHRSA 2008

March 1, 2008

LightSpace, the interactive floor LED coin-op game that we have mentioned a few times on this site is going to make an appearance as the IHRSA 2008 show that will take place on March 5th-8th. This is not an arcade show but a health products show and IHRSAlspace.png stands for “International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association”. With the interest in ExerGaming steadily increasing, coin-op products like LightSpace are bound to attract more positive attention to the industry that already gets a positive view from other foot-controlled games like DDR. Along with this I have received a flyer from LightSpace that indicates some new games are coming out for the system although it doesn’t detail on how these games play.

Lightspace to Demo Three New Games at IAAPA

November 8, 2007


Players Rock Creative Moves with Athletic Video Games

BOSTON–(November 7, 2007)–Lightspace Corporation announced today the introduction of three new games for its interactive gaming system, Lightspace Play. The games will be showcased in Booth 4229 at the upcoming International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo 2007 (IAAPA), in Orlando, November 13-16, 2007, and released in January.

Super Jump Style is a tricked out jump rope game that combines aerobic activity with creative expression. Super Jump Style detects each player’s footsteps and is so smart that it rewards points based on technique. Play can range from basic jumping to elaborate styles. This is not your Grandma’s calisthenics – but if she still jumps rope, she’ll love to play Super Jump Style!

Dance Off is a “smackdown” style dance game. Each player, or team of players, generates moves that their opponent must match, turning dance style into a competition. Players can try any dance moves they want, whether it’s the latest street moves, steps from dance competitions seen on TV, or even old-school break dancing. It’s as easy – or difficult – as the players want it to be.

HyperStep is an intense endurance challenge for all ages. Each player stands in a corner of the Lightspace Play floor and runs in place as fast as they can. The corner color spreads to match the speed of their steps. Play spontaneously starts and stops as cued by the floor color, making this game as much about athletics as it is about focus. HyperStep is red-light/green-light for the next generation!

LightSpace Features New Pricing, More Games

October 15, 2007


I can’t believe that I overlooked this as I have been quite interested in the idea of LightSpace in the arcade, I have even talked with the company about purchasing one. There is a press release from September 27th from LightSpace Corp., discussing new pricing and new software for the platform that was demonstrated at the Fun Expo a couple of weeks ago. While we don’t know any details about the games nor the new price point, this news should make it a little more attractive for operators to take a look at it.

LightSpace has also added on some new people to their team, including Anthony Maniscalco who has worked for both Sega Amusements USA and GlobalVR, bringing a good level of experience to the company.  It should be interesting to see what in-roads LightSpace will make in the coin-op industry.
