Atman Binstock, formerly of Valve’s VR division, has been announced as the new chief architect of the Seattle Oculus Rift R&D team.
“Just over two years ago, (Valve’s) Michael Abrash and I were sitting in a coffee shop in Kirkland,” said Binstock in a press release. He was trying to convince me to come work on AR and VR with him at Valve,” said Binstock.
“Michael convinced me that I was capable of contributing [and] I should be actively pushing it forward. I signed up. Two years later, we’ve solved some of the basic problems, proven great VR is not only possible but truly magical, and now I want to bring it to the world.”
Binstock has previously worked at a number of other companies, including RAD, DICE, and Intel.
