About

More than a technology company…

We are a human technology company passionately curious about the world we live in and striving to create amazing, enriching experiences.

Our story 

Our story begins in September 2014. When Snobal first first opened its doors its chief aim was  the goal of creating awesome real-time, connected, 3D environments.  Today, headed by Murray James and Ann Nolan, our focus is on the development of VR Tools for organisations.

Murray and Ann are supported by a team of highly experienced mentors and a growing team of partner organisations and freelancers from around the world intent on pushing the boundaries of virtual reality and its applications for business.

Why ‘Snobal’?

In May 1984  Jane Snowball, a 72 year old grandmother from Gateshead UK put an order for margarine, cornflakes and eggs through to her local Tesco from her television remote control.

She was part of a local council program – The Gateshead Shopping Experiment – to help the elderly with mobility problems.

 At the time little did Jane Snowball or indeed Michael Aldrich (creator of the technology through which Ms Snowball placed the order) know that she was to become the first person in the world to make an online shopping order from home.
