Glenn Snyder

Master of Shapes
"Fueled by Soylent, Dr. Gray (better known as Glenn Snyder) is obsessed with conquering logic with code. After recreating Tetris in True Basic at 14, Glenn moved on to study the use of programming to create art as a visual effects major at the Savannah College of Art and Design. His studies led him to a career in features where he gained credits working on such films as Transformers, Star Wars, and Ender's Game. In recent years he has moved back toward the technical world, first as the Director of Pipeline Development for Imaginary Forces, and more recently as a technologist and consultant focusing on creating analog experiences with digital tools.
Since 2014 he has continually worked to push the bounds of what is possible in VR with his partner, Adam Amaral (Master of Shapes). Using everything from networking to robotics and computer vision to LIDAR mapping they have driven cars at high speeds while wearing an HMD in the Castrol Virtual Racers series, brought stereo live action footage into volumetric games with Orange Sunshine: Origins, and turned a punching bag into a game controller with Mayweather Punchout. Over the past few months they have partnered with HTC VIVE to bring local multiplayer capabilities to gaming with Mobile Room-scale as they continue to explore virtual and augmented realities. "
