English term or phrase: headport
Si tratta del manuale di un videogioco. Il personaggio principale colpisce le gabbie in cui sono prigionieri i suoi amici con la "headport". La frase è:"To set XXX free from their cages have YYYY zap the cages with his headport by pressing the A button." Io ho tradotto:"Per liberare i XXX dalle loro gabbie, YYYY deve colpire le gabbie con la sua (headport) premendo il tasto A". Ho difficoltà a trovare il significato di headport e ad attribuire una traduzione più adatta a zap. Potete aiutarmi? Grazie

Explanation:
ho trovato in rete questo sito, che sembra riferirsi a combattimenti tra personaggi immaginari:

. Last Gabbit on Oddworld. Known to control machinery with
infrared headport. Swims very well but having only one leg slows him on land ...
http://www.xbox.com/cms/pdf/Munch_Manual_En.pdf

penso quindi che headport si debba poter tradurre come telecomando; ciò andrebbe d'accordo con il verbo zap - attaccare di sorpresa, distruggere con un attacco improvviso, distruggere con microonde (secondo il Webster).

Buon divertimento! Gilda
