Lighthammer

cabinet_02Lighthammer is a revolutionary input device that’s only 30 years too late 🙂 lighthammer is just like the lightpen and lightgun a CRT based input device for your computer… well retro computer that is.
Because nowadays in the age of touchscreens, who needs a lightpen. And in the age of LCD’s well not many people own a CRT anymore.
Therefore lightguns aren’t what they used to be. The good old lightgun is just a lightpen with a trigger and an extra lense.
And in order for the lightpen/gun to operate you’ll need a CRT monitor. If you have such a monitor and a retrocomputer like the C64, then this might be of interest to you. Because the lighthammer opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
