Senior Research Engineer, Sony Interactive Entertainment
Richard Marks is a Senior Researcher for Sony Computer Entertainment America’s Research & Development group. Inspired in 1999 by the unveiling of PlayStation 2, he joined PlayStation R&D to investigate the use of live video input for gaming and develop new interactive user experiences.
Since joining SCEA, Marks developed the technology for the EyeToy camera, working closely with the Sony London Studio. He later helped create the PlayStation Eye camera and a computer vision SDK for the PlayStation 3. Concurrently, he explored the use of 3D cameras and the new experiences they could enable. Most recently, Marks has helped develop the new motion controller, PlayStation Move, which combines both visual and inertial sensing to enable 3D interaction.
Marks received a Bachelor of Science in Avionics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a doctorate in the field of underwater robotics from Stanford University.
