Indoor skeet shooting: Target practice, broken vases

Skeet shooting is not something you'd want to try right smack in your living room. But that hasn't stopped Interative Toy Concepts from developing a skeet shooter game designed to be an indoor toy.

Skeet shooting has always been something of an English gentleman's recreational sport, although there's also Olympic skeet if you're gunning for more competitive shooting. The target is to break clay discs flung into the air at high speed from a variety of angles. It's definitely not something you'd want to try right smack in your living room. That, however, hasn't stopped Interative Toy Concepts from developing a skeet shooter game designed to be an indoor toy. It showed the game off at CES 2010.

To play, the device launches three plastic discs which the player has to hit with an infrared gun (as opposed to a shotgun). If "hit," the discs break apart, though not as spectacularly as the real clay versions. The toy discs can be reassembled for endless rounds.

It's too bad some homes have so little headroom, let alone real estate for flying discs. Not all is lost, though. If you still have a hankering to be the best indoor skeet champ in the block, Nintendo's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (Wii) has a skeet-shooting event that'd do just as well (and with far less collateral damage to your living room, which your significant other will thank you for).

Skeet Shooter is ready to launch come the 2010 holidays.
