Hi my name is Ed Larkin and I am the founder of Xavier Technologies, LLC. I am also the Designer/Developer of the PLA "Motion Controller". I have over 30 years of experience developing/inventing computer gaming devices and have received patents for several of my gaming peripherals throughout my career. In 1994, I created the Mouse Bungee and for the next 16 years sold it to gamers all over the world. In 2010 Razer bought the Mouse Bungee from me. Razer also hired me to work on their innovation Design Team as an engineering consultant. I am not a team player so that did not last long.
Long before illuminated keyboards existed, I designed the "Cyberlyte" a keyboard illuminator to play games in the dark for added realism. My TwitchPadz were a high-resolution mouse pad for laser mice and the FragStick, was a hybrid mouse/Joystick controller. I received patents for all of these devices and they and many more of my products can be seen on the History page link.
I started in the 80's working 2 full time jobs, I founded Alternative Engineering and worked at home in the daytime and I worked at Digital Equipment Corporation on the second shift. My company made computer add-ons for the Bally Home Arcade computer using the name "VIPER" systems. (Video Image Processing Equipment Research) The company also won over several other competitors to get the exclusive rights to produce the hardware for a ground-breaking graphics language called Z-GRASS 32.One of his companies Z-GRASS systems is on display at the National Videogame Museum in Frisco Texas.
