Lazer Tag -- the game that moves at the speed of light!
About me and these pages:
My name is Brian Farley (also known as "TagFerret" on various Lazer Tag posting boards), and I am the software engineer and co-inventor of the Lazer Tag Team Ops line of gear presently being sold by Tiger Electronics, a division of Hasbro Toys. I also had a small part in developing the Tiger Lazer Tag system which was sold by Tiger Electronics in the mid-1990's.
I work for Shoot The Moon Products, a toy invention company in Pleasanton, California. Shoot The Moon was founded by David Small and Paul Rago, who were co-founders (also VP's of Engineering and Marketing respectively) of Worlds Of Wonder, the toy company that developed the first gear bearing the Lazer Tag brand name back in the 1980's.
Because of my unique association with Lazer Tag, I have collected quite a lot of information about the sport and the equipment used, the technology and how it has progressed through the years, and have access to a number of the prototypes and early development models that were used to bring this equipment to market. A lot of people ask me questions about these things, so I thought it would be nice to gather all the data I could find into one place for everybody. Please bear with me, it is a work in progress!
I also have a large number of modifications which I have documented for improving the performance of the Lazer Tag Team Ops gear which I have helped create, and I moderate the LTTO group on Yahoo! So it seems only fitting to add these elements to this web page as well.
Please note that the opinions expressed on these pages are mine and mine alone, and the information presented is not guaranteed to be 100% factual -- I make mistakes like anyone else.
