My name is Tanat Boozayaangool and I'm a graphics/engine programmer. I'm really passionate about building immersive narratives and mesmerizing scenes, and
I also really enjoy pursuing new ways to build virtual reality and augmented reality experiences.
Unified Reality is a platform that takes a VR game and shares it to other users through augmented AR and a projection mapping system.
This was completed as part of my internship with BitStudio (the team consisted of two other full-time employees and I).
I was in charge of the AR side of things. This included integrating iOS ARKit, reading networked data, and displaying a character's pose based on the VR headest and the controllers.
This project was featured at Techsauce Global Summit 2017.
VArm is a tool for medical profesionals to study anatomy using VR. This was a group project for a research class.
I took the role that was a mix between lead developer and project manager -- I worked on the code infastructure, delegated tasks, and facilitated meetings between programmers and artists.
One of the features I worked on was a way to position each limb based on the rotation of its parent joint and to cause muscles to flex (by firing blendshapes).
This project was featured at Imagine RIT.
VRsus guARdian is a two-player, cat-and-mouse hunt, where one player with an AR tablet searches through a physical space, while another player on PC navigates a virtual world that maps to the physical one.
I'm the team lead on the project and my responsibilities is mostly centered around programming and PM-type stuff.
This game represented RIT at the RPI Game Fest.
I attended GDC (Game Developer Conference) 2017 as an International Ambassador! Our mission is to help foster game development communities in areas with little support for game development. Learn more here.
I really enjoy using Adobe Illustrator, especially when I get money for doing so. You can view some of work through my Bēhance.
I overlook a bunch of students and help build a positive environment by guiding them towards appropriate resources (such as those for mental health concerns).
I answer questions and guide students through classes and assignments. Classes I TA for include: Data Structures & Algorithms II and Game Design and Development I.
