I got to thinking today and I would like to know what some of you think the future of paintball will be. I watched a video that was realeased about a week ago, the new Strikeloader a company in Germany is designing. Basically a backpack loader that has a capacity of 1200 rounds......could be useful. Kind of like the warpeed from back in the day. What are your guys opinion on this new product and where do you see paintball 10-15, 20 years from now? Mike, if you could i would greatly like your opinion on this too!

GPS paintballs and airless system markers

Hopefully we get past the big roadblock that is the paintball itself.

Hydrotech will be the low end paintball

Hmm. Water paintballs (hydrotec ;-;)

Smaller hoppers that feed faster

Compressors built into the gun that can keep up with the need for air

I would gladly spend my life savings for a trip to that planet haha

 

Personally i think the paintball itself will advance too, like how the first strike round was made.  I just hope that paintball stays itself and doesn't get too far off track into the milsim area.  I think first strike / mag fed markers are a gateway into more military style equipment.

We can't fix the human condition YET. I personally believe the technology is endless but the actual sport itself has its limits which are purely from the shitheads who ruin this sport and any other one.

Paintballs filled with paint made from the ferrous metallic fluid found in magnetorheological suspensions like on the Corvette ZR1 and use electromagnets to fire the paintballs. Sort of paintball railguns. I don't think it'd take a shitload of power to achieve 285fps. Just have a small but powerful Lithium Ion battery pack that clips onto the marker sort of like a power drill or something. I doubt that the current board technology would have any difficulty controlling the markers. But cost of paint would be nuts.

Its funny because I've thought of a system where the bolt was driven by a solenoid, like in an old door bell. The only air that would be used would be to propel the ball.

 

However, it would probably require a decently large battery.

Nobody will play paintball because everyone is going to be drafted for WWIII when we bomb Syria.......

In all honesty look at 2,000 and look at now. Guns will keep progressing just like they have over the last 10 years.

A reality TV show where the public gets to take part in a weeding out process where only the TOP players advance to the finals. It travels from city to city, and dedicated games occur with the best players advancing. Each player has a helmet cam, and a ZoomCam and the footage is edited to show on TV their style of play. Players can be sponsored by companies and represent their gear, and the public can send "gifts" online to their favorites (including paintball grenades, paintball mines, extra paint, food, ect). 

 

From each city the top players advance. Blooper reels of other players getting destroyed is shown as well in the introduction shows. 

 

Then the finals begin. 

 

Which take place on an island. Participants are taken by boat to the island, the top players from each city are now a team and the objective is to destroy the other teams, while taking control of storehouses on the island. Each team is dropped on a different part of the island. (the island is small only about 30 acres total). 

 

Each team has limited paint. Only what they are carrying and their marker. But, on the island are storehouses of paint/air/food. The key is to take out the other teams while also gaining ground. Ownership of storehouses yeilds cash at the end of the game. If you hold a certain storehouse you get so many dollars. Lose that storehouse and you lose the cash. 

 

Teams can work together or not, based on their individual strategy. Camera stations are all over the island filming everything, and the helmet cam/gun cam footage is also included in the final edit. 

 

Pretty much a survivor/paintball style event. Headshots are instant eliminations, and other shots can be revived with a medic on your team. If the medic is eliminated, you can use a medic from another team if they choose to let you do that. But, injured players can't eliminate other players unless he is "revived" by a medic.

 

The game would be over when a team (or single surviving player) takes out the last of the other players. That player (or team) would split a $5,000,000 top prize and be named the "2013" extreme paintballer of the year.

Mike, if you could i would greatly like your opinion on this too!

 

As suspicious as a new member making his first post about a recently announced product is, i do appreciate that you are looking to feel out what people are feeling about it, so here's my 2 cents:

 

I think that in the woods this could be a great product as it allows you to distribute the weight of the rounds on your shoulders and removes some from the hands... In the future of this product i think it needs to hold your tank in some ergonomical way where a remote line could be strapped to the backpack's feed hose. Noone wants to increase the girth, and having it on top of the lid might prove impractical... but if the shell were slimmer and a tank could be mounted on either side that might be a winner....

 

I'm not sure it is the future of all paintball play... there will still be some people who prefer a loader. But it looks like a great idea none the less, and ii look forward to the possibility of trying it sometime...

We're talking about the future though, so tankless guns wouldn't be to difficult if someone developed away to launch paintballs to 300+ fps without breaking the paint in the process. I mean they said computers would never be smaller then the desktop and look at us now!

Kinda, cept, you can't climb trees, and the players are volunteers and don't really die... lol.

 

Plus you enter the game with YOUR favorite marker, you don't have to run to the middle. And there would be a LOT of players. I would think at least 50 to start the game... 3 per city, so each "team" would be a small attack group.

 

 

The key would be making it a very exclusive group, and exclusive field, (not something the public could ever play, so it makes people REALLY want to play there...).

Same way they launch roller coasters, dude. You can accelerate linearly without it being violent and have no physical contact between bolt and paint. This is something that, if money were no object, would be doable today.

However, it would probably require a decently large battery. 

When I was working on cars on a regular, I had a Makita Cordless 18V lithium ion powered impact and drill set that I could use for days (not non-stop, mind you, but used regularly) and the battery pack wasn't really bulky or heavy at all and the only reason it was awkwardly shaped was so you could set the drill down without it moving. They had smaller stuff like this (http://www.makitausa...px?Name=TD090DW) in 10.8VLIon and the battery fits right into the grip. I really don't think it would be implausible to use something very similar to power and operate a paintball marker and using ferrous fluid magnetized for one pole and have the "bolt" be nothing more than a polar-opposite electromagnetic discharge. You wouldn't wan't to pulse it (for obvious reasons) but you could use staged magnets to smoothly and gradually increase the paintball's speed without damaging or disfiguring the paint like a rollercoaster or use a solenoid to actuate a bolt that is tipped with a magnet that is polar opposite of the magnetized fluid. Hell, if it weren't for the health risks, I bet you could use Mercury.

Maybe the tank could be replaced with a ergonomically friendly battery?

paint that is perfectly accurate, doesn't chop or break in the barrel, and never bounces on the opponent.

I like bounces. Its like when you roll a D20 and get a 20. Its that awesome feeling of OH SHIT that was close.

Paintballs filled with paint made from the ferrous metallic fluid found in magnetorheological suspensions like on the Corvette ZR1 and use electromagnets to fire the paintballs. Sort of paintball railguns. I don't think it'd take a shitload of power to achieve 285fps. Just have a small but powerful Lithium Ion battery pack that clips onto the marker sort of like a power drill or something. I doubt that the current board technology would have any difficulty controlling the markers. But cost of paint would be nuts.

 

So paintball railgun?

Easily. The milsim, scenario and woodsball guys would love it because you could have a marker much closer to an actual military weapon and the battery could fit in the stock. With a magnetic fill in the paintballs, the gravity feed could no longer be a necessity, as well.

Yea! And, like I said, if money was no object, we have the technology to make this now. You could even retain some of the features that current markers have. Barrel backs could not only be used for sizing but could also have different windings in them (for the electromagnetic launching segment) that could increase voltage and decrease amperage (or vice versa) to make the marker more battery efficient or have a more linear acceleration of the paint. And, in addition to custom firing modes and dwell, you could also adjust the pulse width of the power to the electromagnets or the strength of the field. Wouldn't it be fun to find out if changing the magnetic field could reshape shitty paint so you have more uniform marker performance?

a planet devoted solely to the sport of paintball

This, this would be the shit.
In that case, after many decades, the paintballers will com back and over take earth. Nobody could stop them

Nobody is going to use the strikeloader in speedball, it is basically for scenerio or woodsball.
