We redefined the gaming experience. It's time to make history once again.
Func will once again redefine the gaming experience with cutting edge products to make history for a second time. In 2012, Func decided it was time to revamp the look and feel of the brand and give it a fresh image. But bringing Func back to you is so much more than cosmetic changes, it’s about enhancing your gaming experience in a more meaningful way. We want to make a difference in performance, just like we did back in the day, and we want to do it in an honest and trustworthy way.
What looks simple and obvious to the untrained eye is, to us, a complex challenge. The term “ergonomics” is very commonly used today. Did you know that we spent more than 100 hours studying the human hand and how the mouse body can be improved? Not to mention the hours spent on testing the perfect placement of the buttons. Did you know that we have tested more than 200 different surface materials in search of the perfect tracking conditions?
There are no shortcuts in this business and functionality kicks in where simplicity doesn’t make any sense. We believe that your performance (besides your personal skills and training) can only be enhanced by the usability of the functions and not simply by a bunch of fancy gimmicks marketed as revolutionary product development. They make you buy it but it doesn’t give you any advantage at all.
How it started
It all started back in 1999 in sunny California. A bunch of passionate gamers and friends got fed up with computer gear not cutting it. Like anyone serious about gaming, these guys decided it was time for action. They were visionaries, free thinkers and entrepreneurs. Their goal was set, and the history of computer gaming was about to change.
Their goal was to create computer gear designed for gamers, by gamers. Fantastic equipment made with the sole purpose of enhancing the experience of playing a great game, rather than diminishing it.
For the first time gamers had set the standards and the result blew the market away. When Func released their first product, it hit the market in a spectacular way. The double-sided Func sUrface 1030 Mouse pad won awards from nearly every major site and magazine in the industry. The Func sUrface 1030 had a huge impact on the industry; it changed the way computer products were designed and manufactured, and it changed the view on gamers and the gaming community.
