Google’s Tilt Brush isn’t so much a game as it is a virtual reality version of Microsoft Paint—but it’s a damn cool one, as demonstrated by the trailer above.
The app is running on HTC’s Vive VR setup, which not only includes the display you wear on your face, but also motion controllers to act as virtual paint brushes and cameras that track the user’s movement through space, allowing you the ability to create some of the amazing 3D pieces shown in the video. The ability to move around in VR space makes for some cool artistic possibilities, especially when you don’t have to worry about things like paint or clay or getting dirty or touching physical objects. Sounds like a pretty cool alternative way to make art without needing a shower after. Tilt Brush is even cooler in the hands of actual artists.
Tilt Brush is available on digital PC games portal Steam, as well as through the Vive itself. It also sounds like it’ll be available for other VR headsets like the Oculus Rift, probably when Oculus releases its own tracked motion controls, dubbed Oculus Touch, releases sometime in the second half of 2016.
