Hey guys most of you have played video games . We have enjoyed lots of games like Mario, contra etc. But a game which touched our heart is the ”Duck Hunt” game where we got a physical light gun and we have to shoot ducks on TV screen and a dog used to carry the shot ducks. Do you know how the light gun works?. Well today we are going to talk how the light gun works.

In our childhood we played Mario, Contra many times. When Mario jumped, we also jumped with the controller. But the duck hunt game was pretty interesting whereas we have an actual gun to shoot ducks. If you aim wrong the duck will fly away. So What’s the connection between the TV and the light gun. As we all know that on that timeline when the game released we didn’t have any smart technologies in the big old fatty CRT monitors. So the main question is how did the monitor do all those things?

The light gun technology in the duck hunt game explained

In this old consoles and TVs there is a simple technique which light sensing. So what’s the technique? Basically when you triggered your light gun, the gaming console sends a signal to the tv and the TV shows a white square box in the place of the flying duck and the rest of the screen goes black. Well now you may ask, “we didn’t even see any black screen while playing duck hunt”. Well this happens only for one frame. That’s why we never noticed black screen but the gun can sense the light by it’s sensor called photodiode sensor. Basically the photodiode sensor senses the light.

If you aim correctly and shoot
If you aim correctly and shoot, the white square box will appear and your light gun will sense that and send the current data to your console that the duck has been shot and the TV shows that the dog gets the duck in his hand and give you a smile and a thumbs up👍

If you aim wrong and shoot
Now when you point your gun in wrong area and triggered the gun, the light square box will appear but due to wrong aiming your light gun will not able to sense the light and the duck will fly away. So this is technology behind the light gun.
Now the question comes….
Can we use this technology in our smart TVs ?
In simple language No ! But why we can’t use the technology in our smart TVs. Basically the modern TVs got very slim, although it provides stunning picture quality but the response time of CRT monitors is much faster than we are using now. There is a cathode ray tube in the back of CRT monitors. This tube is continuously firing electrons. That’s why the CRT monitors can show the black and white screen very fast compare to the present TVs. But this technology can’t use in present days. If you ask why? Just plug old consoles to the modern TVs and try to play duck hunt game and comment your experience down below the comment box.
