I got this email from the Father.IO IndieGoGo system on Dec 22, 2016. I haven’t seen anything of the sort pop up on the forum, so I’ll just pass it along. Check this out!
Hello Father.IO Community,
Our Designed for Manufacturing Inceptor has just passed its last optical test and results are amazing.
The hardware is great as expected and we can’t wait to show you more of it.
We can now confirm that:
- The Inceptor has a certified attack range “hitbox” cone of 2 meters diameter at a distance of 50 meters, as promised
We tested the Inceptor with several light conditions
Range, damage, rate of fire, accuracy and reload time parameters are highly customizable and will be combined together to create a lot of different types of weapons in father.io
As you know Inceptors can communicate with each other using a Sub-GHz network. Last month we did a final range test demo and the maximum distance we achieved during our test has been 283 meters for the 868MHz version, and up to 483 meters for the 915MHz (US market) one. This mean that the Inceptor will be able to detect casual enemies around you in such area, and a will give a LAN-party lag-free experience everywhere you play.
Thanks for keeping on supporting us and to the next update: more news in the next days!
The Father.IO Team
