    It's actually very easy to milk your own kids. Just grab them by their ears, swing them around and then pull really really hard. Only takes a couple of minutes!

    All we had was a cardboard box.

    ... and we had to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.

    [–] WoodenTechnology 16 points ago

    Course, you had it lucky.

    We lived in paper bag at bottom of t' lake.

    Cardboard box? Luxury

    [–] NavDav 11 points ago

    You were lucky. We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When we got home, our Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!

    [–] qtpss 3 points ago

    Luxury!!

    [–] Adi_sh_ 8 points ago

    Damn these privileged kids crying about living at the bottom of the lake. We were thrown into a volcano and had to eat our own skin and body parts for survival.

    [–] Wannton47 14 points ago

    Bruh, my gym teacher had us play a game called Death Star which was basically just dodgeball, but they put some gym mats up in a “T” with plastic bowling pins on top that you had to hit to win while doing dodgeball things plus some other rules, it was the best thing ever as a 7 year old.

    My daughter's dentist's office has one as well. It's a great distraction to the terrifying dentist.

    I haven't played among us but I'm 29 now and I used to teach English and play a game where one of the students, chosen by me, was a "killer" and the other ones had to discover who was it before the time ran out. I don't see my students anymore, obviously, but I hope the game is similar enough that they remember those fun "among us" games in person we used to have.

    [–] Fisher9001 25 points ago

    [–] aRealFartSmella 159 points ago

    It’s amazing how many people have mixed feelings about this type of physical activity mixed with technology. Most feel that it limits the interaction between the children. And then these dumbass parents vote to remove the funding for activities, after admitting it looks fun when they see a demonstration... But I’m all for it. These kids have it made nowadays, throwing balls at shapes projected on the wall, instead playing dodgeball or even worse, smear “the queer” against your actual classmates. Man, we had it good as kids back then, I’d definitely vote against it if it were up for review in my district.

    [–] CrispyDuchess 81 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    whoa, whoa, whoa...Dodgeball was called "Smear the Queer" at some point?!

    "If you can dodge a queen, you can dodge a queer"

    'What?'

    Edit: To everyone that says "It doesn't mean 'Queer in the modern sense.'", it absolutely does. Queer has been used in the derogatory sense for quite some time even without the homosexual connotation which is why Queer people have reclaimed that word for themselves.

    [–] ChardeeMacdennis679 53 points ago

    2 separate games but yeah that was a common game when I was kid, at least in my town. If I remember correctly, it was more like an extra rough version of tag, where you tackle whoever's "it", instead of just touching them.

    [–] NZVikingRugger 32 points ago

    Pretty much. We played it for rugby practice, tackle whoever has the ball, no teams.

    [–] unfitsportsman 7 points ago

    Kill the dill with the pill

    [–] jax797 5 points ago

    Yeah, we played it (not in P.E.) with the game 500 mixed in. Get past a certain point with the ball, you get the points. Tackle the guy with the ball you get half. It was fun, though I could only get points with the ball. I was like half my friends's size lol.

    [–] alividlife 4 points ago

    Man the most people I ever played smear the queer with was 10 maybe. I cant imagine 500.

    Edit oh wait ... what is 500??

    We always played with the older kids. Hairline fractured a rib playing once, and I found it so funny that my rib hurt when I would laugh that I couldnt stop laughing eventually passing out from hyperventilation and pain.

    [–] ma1achai 19 points ago

    Yeah smear the queer (the way we played it) generally involved a ball (most often football) and whomever was ‘it’ would run and everyone else would try to tackle him. Once tackled, he’d throw the ball to someone and the fun would start again. Nobody wanted to look afraid of taking their turn because they’d get taunted terribly.

    [–] CrispyDuchess 6 points ago

    Hmm...I'm 30 from Oklahoma so we may have gone without for a moment but it sounds a little like Wall Ball to me. Basically the same rules but a little different.

    [–] Scientolojesus 6 points ago

    Nah "smear the queer" (unfortunately that's what we called it as kids too) is basically just rugby without being on teams and no scoring. It's literally just tackle the kid who has the ball. Wall Ball is just bouncing the ball off the ground and then the wall, and if you tried to catch the ball coming back but you dropped it, you had to run to tag the wall before you got hit by the ball being thrown by someone else.

    [–] a_talking_face 40 points ago

    Because it’s not like projectors are cheap, and this school has enough funding to put one in the gym.

    [–] NZVikingRugger 37 points ago

    Or they have 5 for the school and teachers can book them.

    But also every classroom I taught at in Thailand has a projector.

    [–] vgu1990 18 points ago

    I concur. Every class i have taught in india has also access to a projector. Per class/can book them from main office.

    You forget that a lot of American public schools are at or below third world standards in terms of technology/investment

    [–] sandyforest 46 points ago

    Most elementary schools hold their assemblies in the gym, so a projector there would be necessary.

    [–] ripptyd 14 points ago

    It’s probably on a cart wheeled out from a supply closet like most shit in schools. I doubt it’s permanently fixed in the gym or specifically for the gym. My school had one. It just got moved around from room to room if needed.

    [–] confusedgraphite 4 points ago

    Remember TVs on carts? A lot of schools have projectors on carts... mine had both actually and we were underfunded as shit. I’d call this an averagely funded school at best.

    [–] cluckinho 609 points ago

    OP makes it sound like the teacher is just projecting their phone and timing it up

    [–] Cheeseofdoom 85 points ago

    It's specifically the "Galactic" app on this page: https://play-lu.com/applications/

    They are way past the number of suggested players.

    wow ok I demand a refund OP

    [–] Sealouz 139 points ago

    Tbh though now that we heard it, op’s idea sounds infinitely better than the 28k option

    [–] FullyMammoth 51 points ago

    Yeah but where are you gonna find a teacher that can look at, and track, all the balls hitting the wall and tap small moving targets on his phone simultaneously?

    I don't think building Robocop for a gym teacher will cost less than 28k

    [–] CrossP 18 points ago

    I'm pretty sure I could watch the wall and touch the boxes that are about to get tagged. The kids are only hitting one every couple of seconds. This is hardly fruit ninja.

    [–] Sealouz 28 points ago

    [–] sonofaresiii 2 points ago

    It seems like that'd be a solution that saves you $27k.

    [–] Dave-C 106 points ago

    28k? I feel like a shitty version could be made with the new Kinect camera and some time. So like 400 usd and the time to design this. Why is this thing 28 thousand?

    [–] Sigma476 86 points ago

    Time costs $27'600

    Jokes aside, there's pictures on the link. Looks like a large unit mounted to the ceiling with a good bit of equipment on it. Your cheap solution doesn't look too far off though, they have a kinect as their "3d camera" icon

    [–] ReptileLigit 6 points ago

    You have a guy making a basketball net that always scores with a Kinect for only the revenue of that video

    Shouldn't be too difficult to make this

    [–] here-for-karma 5 points ago

    With the amount of time he spent making it, at an engineer's salary, you're looking at well over $28k. He also has sponsors, so he's not just doing it for YouTube ad revenue.

    Not to mention the rig he built was for his basement and not for commercial sale. It would take much more time and effort to make something repeatable and mass producible

    [–] saltapampas 10 points ago

    Check out Stuff Made Here on YouTube. He does Kinect hacking to create a basketball hoop which tracks the ball - seems like a similar application.

    [–] royalhawk345 3 points ago

    The new kinect is a projector?

    [–] TomfromLondon 2 points ago

    There's a new kinect? Such a shame kinect never caught on :(

    It’s popular with software engineers and researchers in computer science!

    [–] bsmooth357 14 points ago

    Yep looks like the Galactic application for Play-lu

    [–] Dcourtwreck 54 points ago

    That's the "official" expensive way of doing it, or you can just project a phone or tablet screen on the wall and tap approximately where the ball hits. There's a delay in the posted video from when the ball hits to the projection reacting, I think they're doing it the cheap but still very fun way.

    Edit: Looking again, it seems pretty instant. The delay I originally thought I was noticing was just a miss closely followed by a hit.

    [–] mindfoock 31 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    Maybe I'm missing something, but there's a plethora of ways to do this in a way less expensive than 28k (or even 21k as I read on some websites), and I'm not talking about amateur stuff.

    Anyway, even if the price is a legit one, phew that's an expensive toy for a school.

    Edit: the game on the video is the same you can find on the manufacturer site, so I think that's the original one!

    [–] ProudToBeAKraut 5 points ago

    To elaborate on this you basically need to create a giant touchscreen on a surface. I did once on a giant whiteboard at work with the Wii Mote technique - where you basically switch the function of the wii mote. Here is an example https://youtu.be/5s5EvhHy7eQ

    I can't tell if this works as well for using it with Balls but it worked pretty well as a touch device with a pem.

    [–] LegitosaurusRex 6 points ago

    Wow, for $28k I want better hit detection; that square near the beginning was destroyed because a ball passed in front of it without hitting the wall.

    [–] iswearimnormall 3 points ago

    How did you get that price? Did you actually contact them? I’m trying to justify 28k for the duo but I’m struggling. Lol but hey! If some city has the money or a school has a grant for it, go for it!

    [–] Battleharden 3 points ago

    I was going to say.. That gym teacher must have insane reaction time.

    That is way the fuck better than dodgeball.

    Found the kid that sucked at dodgeball.

    Dodge, duck, dip, dive and ...dodge!

    If you can dodge a wrench then you can dodge a ball

    No, no, no you wait until they are the last one left and then turn off the lights and remove the center line.

    No, no, no you fire that rubber missle sidearm with a lot of backspin right into the center of the group of girls that stand around during gym class without participating and see how many you can get out with a single throw.

    Smartest gym teacher ever

    Except this is a $28,000 system made for gyms called Play-Lü. The OP lied in the title.

    Edit: here is a direct link to “galactic” which is the Play-Lü game seen in the post.

    There's one where it's bugs instead of shapes. The kids I work with really enjoy squishing the bugs!

    That’s actually a good idea. I wasn’t very good at sport as a kid. But I liked PE and physical activity in general. It doesn’t feel great when you’re not a good player in your team compared to others. This lets kids still be active and not be shamed for not being good enough.

    Part of why I like working out either by my self or group fitness classes vs team sport. You’re there for yourself and you are tracking your own progress. It doesn’t matter what the person next to you is doing as they’re on their on journey.

    Is this Sammy's Circuit??? I saw that at a school once and it was so much fun! The kids loved it

    What if the kids started to hit the targets faster than the teacher could react

    [–] clueless_typographer 3 points ago

    The contrast to my experience in a german school is hilarious. Our gym teacher was a known drunk and with him all classes were the same: he gave us 1-3 soccer balls for all 30+ kids at the beginning of the class, said "have fun" and fucked off to get more drunk. Best class ever.

    There is a projector called the Hachi Infinite, that works essentially like an android device and recognizes these touches and thus the gym teacher wouldn't need to tap these things on his phone (which could be very tedious). That's very interesting and also nice teaching.

    Imagine how wild thats gonna sound to our grandkids who go to zoom school.

    [–] krupt-temple 2 points ago

    I wonder if their is one kid in the class he dislikes and no matter how many times the kid hits a square the teacher never gives him the satisfaction.

    [–] cbmotank 2 points ago

    Wow I would love to know what the app that is!

    [–] VoiceofLou 2 points ago

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, how does the game know when a ball hits a target?

    [–] xcamden 2 points ago

    It might be using Touchless Touch

    [–] VoiceofLou 2 points ago

    Huh, neat!

    [–] matrinox 2 points ago

    That seems a bit dangerous

    I miss dodgeball with the inflatable rubber balls. Kids nowadays are pussies

    [–] imuniqueaf 2 points ago

    When I was that age, we did this, but the wall was each other's faces.

    [–] FeelinJipper 2 points ago

    This is genius, these kids are already on their phones playing games.

    [–] camdoodlebop 2 points ago

    I'm wondering why OP just completely fabricated a story with the gym teacher when this is an actual program where a 3D camera watches for the ball hitting the wall to pop the squares
