Proud owner of over 100 granted or pending patents
ATLANTA– (BUSINESS WIRE) -Scuf Gaming®, innovator and creator of the high-performance gaming controller market, has expanded its global patent portfolio to 62
One such SCUF innovation is highlighted in the recently granted United States Patent No. 10,188,940, covering mechanism within the controller for manual adjustment of trigger range of motion, which had been filed several years before.
SCUF is well known for re-inventing the way gamers use a controller, and has over 100 patents protecting its innovation
- Back Control Functions - paddles (P1, P2, P3, P4) accessed using your middle fingers
- Trigger Control Area - ability to fine tune your triggers for different games
- Thumbstick Control Area - ways to change your thumbstick sizes and shapes
- Side Action buttons (S1, S2) - removable side activation points
"It's amazing to see how the controller has evolved since we first invented back control functions 9 years ago," said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming. "At the time, the middle fingers of the hands went completely unused. I thought the thumbs could reside on thumbsticks. In 2011, only a few hundred people used our features. Today, most core gamers would agree that you can't play modern games without SCUF features. "
In 2015, Scuf Gaming licensed its IP to Microsoft to create the Xbox Elite controller and in 2018, Scuf Gaming licensed parts of its IP to Collective Minds. Scuf Gaming continues to invest millions of dollars into research and development
