Class Information
Number: 273/372
Name: Amusement devices: games > Aerial projectile game; game element (e.g., target, etc.) or accessory therefor other than projector or projectile, per se > Target > With electrically actuated or operated indicator > Indicator responsive to projectile produced sonic or shock wave
Description: Target device including either a sound wave sensitive means mounted on or near the target device or a shock wave sensitive means mounted on or near the target device, which sound wave sensitive means or shock wave sensitive means is operatively associated with the electrically actuated or operated indicating means; and wherein the indicating means is actuated either (a) by the sound waves or shock waves generated by a projectile whenever it approaches, passes in the vicinity of, or strikes the target device, or (b) by the shock waves traveling through the material of the target device as a result of a projectile impacting thereupon.
