Equipment: Steradian players are always outfitted with a head unit and a laser tag gun, but Steradian offers two types of equipment: Classic Series and X-Series.
Quoted from the Steradian Technologies website; “The Classic Series behaves more like traditional laser tag equipment. Use the Game Controller to program your Classic Series equipment with settings like hit points, ammo limits, which team you are on, etc. Your referee starts the game with a whistle or an air horn. The team with the most number of players left wins!
The X-Series introduces RF, online scoring, hit confirmation, and more. You start and control a game from your laptop computer, using your personalized website at LaserTagScores.com. Select which game you want to play, and click Start Game. The computer displays live scoring, and if you’re connected to the internet, automatically sends the scores up to LaserTagScores.com for people to view on their own computer or mobile phone. Players can share their individual or team scores to friends on FaceBook, Twitter, or Google+. The game continues until only one team remains, or by score when the time runs out.”
Steradian’s Classic Series features two types of laser tag guns, the Eclipse 400 and the S-7 Tactical Edition. The Eclipse 400 is designed for family-friendly entertainment. The S-7 is designed for advanced competitive play.
Steradian’s X-Series also features two types of laser tag guns, the Eclipse 400X and the S-7X. The difference between the two series’ is that the X-Series uses Steradian’s exclusive Chimera Technology.
History: Tom Baker and Alex Moon have been friends since they were children. They were both introduced to Laser Tag in 1995 when a friend took them to a local laser tag group. Baker and Moon both loved the idea of laser tag but they wanted to do it bigger and better. Moon had experience with programming while Baker had experience with technology.
Baker and Moon continued to play laser tag and test out the different pieces of equipment, what they figured out was that the equipment didn’t work in sunlight, so they built their own. In 1999, they created their first laser tag gun, the Pro220. Ever since then Steradian has continued to upgrade their equipment.
Steradian Technologies is still an active manufacturer today.
