History of Lasertag

Using Lazer Tag equipment, players can shoot sensors worn by other players to "tag" them. If you're tagged a certain number of times, you're out. The Worlds of Wonder Lazer Tag equipment uses a 57.6 kHz carrier frequency modulated with a 1.8 kHz signal. Worlds of Wonder ceased production of Lazer Tag equipment when it went out of business in 1988. However, the term "laser tag" remained to be used to describe many games of the same kind. Ten years later, Tiger Electronics licensed the Lazer Tag brand and began producing its own Lazer Tag equipment. Tiger Toys, picked up the license to use the Lazer Tag logo and produce Lazer Tag guns. Unfortunately these new guns are not backwardly compatible. Other companies started producing tag systems as well. For instance, ToyMax's Laser Challenge line, Playmates/Sega Lock-On, and Tomy's Electronic Survivor Shot, etc. These, however, are designed for use by children rather than for commercial purposes.
