HTC’s top Vive designer leaves to work on Google’s Daydream VR

It looks like one of the top personnel designing HTC’s Vive has left the company and joined Google to work on Daydream VR.

Claude Zellweger led HTC design team the Vive headset, but was also a key player in developing HTC’s smartphone design language. But now, he’s moved onto Google where he’ll help design Daydream VR, though we don’t know yet if that’s necessarily a lead position at the search giant.

He made the announcement on Twitter:

According to The Verge, things are actually moving pretty quickly here. Zellweger’s HTC email address has been deactivated and the company provided this statement to the publication:

“HTC can confirm that Claude Zellweger has left the Company. We appreciate his considerable contribution to HTC, and wish him well in his future endeavors. HTC continues to invest in talent and recruitment as part of our broader strategy to ensure the continued strength and integrity of the Company’s organizational structure.”

We here at Talk Android wish Zellweger the best of luck at his new adventure on the Daydream VR’s design team.
