PSVR designer Richard Marks joins Google's advanced technology department

Marks leaves Sony after nearly 20 years working on experimental projects

PlayStation VR designer Richard Marks has joined Google's console division after nearly 20 years with Sony.

Marks joined PlayStation's Magic Lab department in 1999; during his time there he worked on experimental projects such as PlayStation Movie and the EyeToy.

Joining former colleague Phil Harrison as the second high-ranking Sony alumni to take on a position at Google, Marks new role will see him working within the tech giant's enigmatic Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) department.

Harrison, who was appointed vice president and general manager of Google earlier this year, welcomed Marks to his new role via Twitter.
