About Plasticity Studios

Plasticity Studios was founded in 2018 for the purpose of making Tabletop Playground a reality.

Robert had the original idea for a flexible 3D virtual tabletop platform almost a decade earlier, with an early prototype built in 2009. Abandoning the idea for a few years, with the advent of consumer virtual reality hardware he realized that it would also work very well in VR. Starting from scratch in 2014 using the newly available Unreal Engine 4, the project grew in scope until it became what is now Tabletop Playground.
